Danone and Nestlé are mobilizing in the face of the shortage of infant milk in the United States

(AOF) – Danone gains 1.1% to 54.7 euros. According to Reuters, the French food group has increased its infant milk shipments to the United States. Danone, the world’s second-largest manufacturer of infant formula, but a relatively small player on the American market, is trying to respond to the shortage of infant milk in the United States, the press agency said. The shortage was caused by Abbott’s recall of dozens of formula types, including Similac, Alimentum and EleCare, for suspected health deficiencies.

The French group is not the only one to “rescue” American babies. According to the Swiss news agency AWP, the US government, as part of Operation “Fly Formula”, has ordered 1.5 million bottles of baby milk powder from Nestlé. These bottles will be transported by air from Zurich to the city of Plainfield, in the State of Indiana.

This is the first delivery within the framework of the operation, a spokesman for the American embassy in Bern told AWP.
