The a2 Milk Co.'s a2 Platinum Premium Infant Formula will hit U.S. store shelves in the U.S. for the first time this month. The product will appear initially at nearly 250 Meijer stores (available now), and 50 Wegman’s stores (available 9/18).
a2 Platinum has been sold internationally for more than a decade and is one of the top-10 Infant Formula brands globally with annual retail sales of over US $1 billion. The product is made with fresh a2 Milk sourced from carefully selected dairy farmers in New Zealand’s pure and natural South Island. Produced nearby at modern, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities close to Christchurch, The a2 Milk Company prides itself on its food safety and quality standards with zero recalls.
The launch expands The a2 Milk Company’s footprint in the U.S., where it debuted in 2015 with the first milk products from cows that naturally produce only the A2-type protein and no A1 protein, which are available nationwide from major retailers. The company pioneered the science behind understanding A1/A2 protein differences, including digestive and other potential health benefits, and has become the leading provider of these products globally since launching in New Zealand in 2000.
