As a new technology measure, we are introducing laser printed product coding on the bottom of our New Zealand-made Aptamil and Karicare cows’ milk products. The bottom of each tin will feature a big blue dot with laser printed product coding. This new technology is an upgrade to the latest standard in the market and will allow for better visual inspection and make it easier for coding information to be read.

We assure parents that this is a simple packaging improvement. The product ingredients and formulation are still the same.

The first product with the new blue dot and laser printed coding will be Aptamil Gold+ stage 2, with a production date of 1st June 2017 onwards. The implementation of this new coding will be gradually introduced, which means that for a period of time there will be some products in the market with the blue dot and some without.

Below is an example of the old vs new product coding.
