Good news for families with infants…baby formula from France has arrived in Canada and it’s stocked on the shelves at Walmart.

Today, the retailer accepted it’s first shipment, in Mississauga, Ontario. It’s to start compensating for shortages nation-wide over the past two years.

The product, is a top pediatrician-recommended brand in France and is approved by Health Canada:

-Laboratoire Modilac Précision 700g 1st age (0-6 months) for daily nutrition
-Laboratoire Modilac Précision 700g 2nd age (6-12 months) for daily nutrition

“We share the concerns of parents and caregivers who are unable to find the baby formula they need. We have been working with many manufacturers to ensure that families across the country can access the formulas they rely on and this collaboration between Walmart and Laboratoire Modilac is welcome news,” said the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Canada’s Minister of Health. “We will continue to work with manufacturers and all partners to increase supply and ensure the comparable product is available for families who need it.”

The product is a leading producer of infant formula in France, since 1984, with milk collected in the heart of Normandy.

“Walmart Canada is here to help Canadians save money and live better. Today, this guiding principle means we are accepting the first shipment of much-needed imported infant formula on Canadian soil,” said Sam Wankowski, Chief Merchandising Officer, Walmart Canada. “We know the supply chain challenges around baby formula have been extremely stressful for parents. Today, Canadian families can feel more confident when they shop for formula, knowing we have expanded the options available to feed their infants at our everyday low prices.”

There will be full availability on-line and in-store expected, in June.
