Gerber Products Company Key Developments

Gerber Introduces Smart Flow™ Spout across Organic and Grabbers® Pouches

Gerber Products Company announced that they are now featuring the exclusive Smart Flow™ spout across both Organic and Grabbers® pouches. The Smart Flow™ technology was developed following consumer research that found moms wanted a pouch that could help in reducing mess so the food gets into their little ones' tummies and not everywhere else. The Smart Flow™ spout's opening is customized based on what's inside, so it helps provide the appropriate amount per squeeze. Also, because many of those hungry and excited little ones are feeding themselves, Gerber introduced soft sides and rounded edges that are gentle on their mouths and hands. Gerber's new Smart Flow™ pouch began to appear on shelves at the end of 2016 with most major retailers having it available in stores now.

Gerber Good Start Offers Innovative Formula Range with Probiotics

Gerber has announced a line of infant formulas with probiotics, making it the only brand to offer probiotics in all milk-based powder formulas. Nestlé S.A, the parent company of Gerber, in addition to other academic and scientific organizations, has conducted research to determine how probiotics, good bacteria of the type commonly found in breastmilk, may provide support to the development of a healthy digestive and immune system in babies and young children. Based on this research and after assuring their safety, Gerber has made probiotics a key ingredient in all Gerber® Good Start® milk-based powder formulas. In designing their infant formulas, Gerber selected specific probiotics based on the product benefits intended: Gerber® Good Start® Gentle formulas are for healthy babies who are not exclusively breastfed, so Gerber selected probiotic B. lactis, which is similar to the probiotics found in breastmilk: Stage 1 Gerber® Good Start® Gentle is Gerber's closest formula to breastmilk and is the only powder infant formula with a blend of DHA, prebiotics and probiotics – all important components found in breastmilk. Stage 2 Gerber® Good Start® Gentle formula is the only stage 2 powder infant formula that has probiotics. Stage 3 Gerber® Good Start® Grow is the newest member of the Gerber® Good Start® family. Specifically designed for toddlers' nutrition needs, it is the only stage 3 product with probiotics. Gerber® Good Start® Soothe products are for babies experiencing colic, excessive crying and fussiness so Gerber selected the probiotic L. reuteri. Studies using this probiotic have shown that it reduces the amount of time colicky infants may cry. In addition to offering probiotics in all its milk-based powders, all Gerber® Good Start® formulas are made without genetically engineered ingredients (GMOs).

Gerber Recalling Specific Organic Pouch Products

Gerber Products Company is voluntarily recalling specific Organic pouch products after identifying a packaging defect that may result in product spoilage during transport and handling. Because of the commitment to high quality, Gerber is working to retrieve from retailers and online stores the remaining pouches from the four affected batches of GERBER® Organic 2ND FOOD pouches that fail to meet the quality standards. This recall does not impact any other Gerber pouches, other Gerber products or any Gerber products outside of the US.
