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.

Please note, our Infant Formula packaging will not be rebranded until later in 2019.

As all our baby formula and baby food is made from pure, certified organic ingredients, we’re always on the lookout for quality organic milk, fruit and vegetables. We’re a proud Tasmanian company, too, so we’re always trying to source more certified organic ingredients from Tasmania.

This is harder than it sounds and it’s partly our own fault! Bellamy’s has been such a success, both in Australia and China and in Asia generally, that our requirements have outstripped the capacity of Tasmanian farms. We must now source 90% of our fruit and vegetables from certified organic farms on the main land.

Happily, last week’s ABC TV interview with our CEO, Laura McBain, certainly seems to have caught the attention of some Tasmanian farmers.

There is no doubt that changing to certified organic forming takes both time and commitment. The question of yields is still open but there seems little doubt that some crops do better organically than others. However, there is something more to it than yields and that’s bringing a farm back to a natural healthy state. A state that is not increasingly reliant on chemicals to maintain those very yields.

We understand the need for efficient and effective farming practices, but these shouldn’t be at odds with providing healthy, chemical free food. We’re just passionate about mothers being able to choose to give their babies a pure start to life by choosing Bellamy’s Organic formula and our other baby foods. To do that we need the best certified organic produce we can get our hands on.

It’s just that we’d love more of it to come from Tasmania. Apples, pears, strawberries – ok so mangoes and bananas are a stretch, even for Tassie, – but you get the picture. So if you’re a certified organic farmer or have a feeling you should become one, please get in touch. If you’re a mum, rest assured we’re bringing you the best formula, fruit and vegetables we can find for your baby.
