Perrigo Nutritionals, the leading infant formula company that supplies mass
retailers, grocers, and drugstores with their own Store Brand Infant Formulas,
invested significant resources in developing the new SmarTub™ packaging, which
has granted patents and patents pending. The SmarTub™ includes the following
features:

  oThe AccuMeasure™ scoop leveler for more accurate feedings
  oCleanPull™ technology that easily removes a foil liner with one pull
  oSimpleSlide™ scoop storage for less mess
  oA longer scoop handle for more hygienic scooping
  oAnti-theft tag compatibility that protects the product where it is sold in
    retailers across the country

"We believe we have advanced infant formula packaging with novelties that will
transform the overall user experience for parents," said Perrigo Nutritionals
General Manager Scott Jamison. "This undertaking began with extensive
competitive analysis and consumer research, and culminated with the addition
of a new state-of-the-art packaging line at our ISO 9001:2008-certified
facility in Vermont. Our team invested $29 million and three years of
development work into this effort to better serve our customers. The result is
an innovative package on the outside with the same trusted formula on the
inside."

The Vermont manufacturing facility, which has a 29-year history that spans
ownership and operations from Wyeth to Perrigo, is the largest manufacturer of
Store Brand Infant Formulas in the world. The plant manufactures infant
formula 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and, together with an additional
facility in Ohio, is capable of producing 65 million pounds of powder formula
a year. Today Perrigo Nutritionals produces 11 different formulas that are
sold in more than 68 retailer chains including Walmart, Sam's Club, Target,
Kroger, Babies R' Us, and other leading retailers in United States.

"This new packaging design marks industry firsts, including the only 100
percent leak detection system we are aware of engineered into the
manufacturing," added Jamison. "In addition, this is the first infant formula
package on the market we've seen that is anti-theft tag compatible that
protects the product where it is sold in stores across the country."
