What does the WHO Code mean?

The WHO Code on the marketing of mother's milk substitutes protects and supports breastfeeding. The Code determines how mother's milk substitutes may be marketed without endangering the practice of breastfeeding. The International Code makes reference to each product which is marketed as a partial or total replacement for mother’s milk, including feeding bottles and teats. The Code does not ban the sale of such products but rather defines marketing methods and the way in which businesses operate. (International Code: Article 2). The intention is, amongst other things, to suppress advertising or other forms of merchandising to the general public (Article 5.1).

 

What does the WHO Code mean for Ardo?

Taking into account the fact that teats may have a negative effect on the duration of breast feeding. Currently the subject of the WHO Code on mother’s milk substitutes is under intense discussion amongst experts in the field, in conjunction with producers of breastfeeding products. We wish to declare unequivocally – as a matter of company policy - that Ardo is completely committed to observing absolutely each and every WHO Code.
