New Zealand’s A2 Milk Co. thwarted in plan to export infant-formula to US

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) told A2 Milk it is deferring further consideration of the company’s request.

By Andy Coyne

A2 Mil Co. product

Plans by New Zealand dairy firm A2 Milk Co. to export infant-formula to the US to help alleviate a shortage have been put on hold by the American regulator.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) told A2 Milk that it is deferring further consideration of the company’s request to export its infant-formula products into the US.

In a statement, A2 Milk confirmed it had received the FDA’s notification and added: “The company has also subsequently been advised by the [US-based trade group] International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) that equivalent letters have been sent to all pending enforcement discretion applicants, indicating that the FDA is deferring any further review at this time of all pending applications.”

Fellow New Zealand dairy major Fonterra, meanwhile, told media outlets that it has not received a similar notification from the FDA. It too is seeking to export product to the US.

An FDA spokesperson told news agency Reuters that it had sent letters to some firms deferring further reviews of applications due to a list of issues but that this does not mean the infant formulas are unsafe.

The suspension of production at an Abbott Laboratories facility in February following consumer complaints related to Cronobacter sakazakii or Salmonella illness from the consumption of baby powders made at the plant, led to a shortage of infant-formula products on supermarket shelves in the first half of this year.

President Joe Biden enacted the Defense Protection Act in May to prioritise local production and launched Operation Fly Formula to bring in emergency supplies from overseas. The FDA put in place a so-called temporary enforcement discretion order to boost imports, subject to regulatory and health checks.

Companies including Nestle, Danone and Bubs Australia are amongst those to send supplies from overseas to help tackle the domestic shortfall.

The FDA had said it planned to open up the market permanently to both overseas and domestic players beyond 14 November when the temporary decree expires.

EXBERRY® Coloring Foods are suitable for a wide range of beverages

EXBERRY® Coloring Foods are suitable for a wide range of beverages

Monday, August 1, 2022

GNT will demonstrate how EXBERRY® Coloring Foods can be used to create a vast array of colorful, clean-label, and sustainable beverages at drinktec 2022 in Munich (September 12-16).

EXBERRY® colors are plant-based concentrates that can be used to deliver a full rainbow of shades in almost any food and beverage application.

At drinktec 2022, GNT (Hall A5, Booth 452) will hand out hard seltzers (4.5% ABV) and mocktails featuring yellow, orange, and red EXBERRY® shades. A barista will also offer coffees with colorful milk foam while a mixologist will be creating a variety of vibrant cocktails. In addition, the company will showcase market examples of various beverages made with Coloring Foods.

GNT recently announced plans to become the leader in its field on sustainability and the booth will also feature a section dedicated to the topic. The company will screen videos to raise awareness as well as offering visitors tips on how they can take action to protect the planet.

Helen Vine, GNT’s category lead for non-alcoholic beverages, said: “Today’s shoppers want drinks that combine powerful sensory appeal with strong health and sustainability credentials. EXBERRY® Coloring Foods are sustainably produced and support clean ingredient lists, allowing brands to create eye-catching beverages that match up to modern consumer expectations.”

EXBERRY® Coloring Foods are made from non-GMO fruit, vegetables, and plants using traditional, physical processing methods. As a result, they are considered to be food ingredients rather than additives in the EU and qualify for clean label declarations.
