We are excited to announce our new packaging will start to appear on shelf from August 2018. This transition to new packaging will occur over a number of months. During this time there will be a mix of current and new packaging on shelf.

There are no major changes to these products, in some instances there is a small name change or slight recipe improvement, see below for the full details.

Products purchased via the website will be delivered to customers in our old packaging until the end of October. From November, products ordered from the website will be delivered in the new packaging.

Australia’s National Organic Week (NOW) runs between 5th and 14th October. It’s being run to promote the idea of growing and eating organic and as they say in their promotion, NOW is the time to feel the difference, taste the difference and make a difference! And who would know better than ABC celebrity gardener, Costa Georgiadis, who is the NOW ambassador for 2012.

There are plenty of ways in which you can get involved. There are activities all over the country that you can check out (web site at the end of this article) and there are Organic Consumer’s Choice Awards, too, where you can nominate your favourite organic products. Perhaps Bellamy’s might be one of those? Feel free to vote!

What is organic?

We all tend to relate “organic” to organic food output but perhaps we forget that “organic” actually refers to a method of farming and production and it’s good to remind ourselves what that’s all about. So what is organic really? Here’s what NOW has to say:

  • Organic is natural, pure and simple
  • Organic food systems work within the bounds of the natural sequences of their environment
  • They do not rely on synthetic farm fertilisers, herbicides, pesticides, or drenches
  • Organic food contains no harmful preservatives or additives and is GMO free
  • The cornerstone of organic production is healthy soil
  • Organic farmers work hard to build strong lands for a sustainable food production system “for the future”
  • Certified organic food production must account for animal welfare, land restoration and re-vegetation
  • It is commonly heard that organic is “the way food used to be” and today, organic blends the very best of science and ingenuity with centuries of agricultural expertise
  • The organic market considers not just financial but environmental and social returns

So, those are the principles that are behind the farmers that tend the cows that produce the milk for Bellamy’s Organic baby formula. That’s why we say it provides a pure start to life.

NOW is a celebration of all things organic so if you’re interested in the broader aspects of organic farming and production and in what you can do at home, log on and find out more.
