Hero Infant Milks in China are SafePublished: Thursday, March 28, 2013
Hero regrets that a recently broadcasted news item on Chinese Television about our Infant milk brand Hero Nutradefense has created concern around the quality of our product sold in China.
As a Swiss company that has produced high-quality, nutritious food products for over a century, Hero Group has always maintained the highest standards of quality and safety.
Hero launched its infant formula Nutradefense in China in 2012. All Hero Nutradefense sold in China is produced exclusively in the Netherlands.
A recent investigation by the Suzhou Institute of Supervision & Inspection on Product Quality alleged that one of Hero's subdistributors in China has been involved in the illegal repackaging of Nutradefense. This has been investigated by the Suzhou authorities and dealt with appropriately.
Hero Group has not detected any problems concerning the quality and safety of its products on the Chinese market. The company will continue to closely monitor its sub-distributors to ensure the integrity of Hero products sold in China.
