Kendamil is in advanced discussions with the Food and Drug Administration to become the first international manufacturer to export significant quantities of infant formula to the United States.
Kendamil is a brand of Kendal Nutricare, and is the only British-made infant formula. Kendamil offers organic and conventional cow formulas, along with goat formula, which would be a first in the U.S., where, unlike in Europe, no goat milk is today certified for sale to infants under one year old. Kendamil has been in discussions with the FDA for several weeks since news first broke of the formula shortages and the measures announced from the Biden Administration to bring international brands into the United States.
Ross McMahon, CEO of Kendal Nutricare commented, “We have received the call for assistance from the FDA and Kendamil stands ready to act.”
Kendal Nutricare expects to meet the needs of at least 150,000 U.S. households during the import period.
