Primary Connect has been selected by Ontex Australia to move more than 185 million Little One’s nappies per year from its manufacturing plant in Eastern Creek, Sydney.
Little One’s are Woolworths’ popular line of Own Brand nappies which are now being made right here in Australia by Ontex Australia.
Ontex Australia will produce an average of 10 nappies every second for the Australian and New Zealand market.
Primary Connect anticipates it will move 288 pallets per week across the country by road, rail and sea to all Woolworths DCs in NSW, SA, WA, QLD, VIC and TAS.
Woolworths has also used the change to Australian-made nappies to introduce new features to Little One’s.
Woolworths FoodCo Managing Director Guy Brent said: “As a proudly Australian brand, we are big supporters of Australian manufacturing and producers and we’re thrilled to relaunch Little One’s so customers can rely on a new and improved nappy, produced right here in Australia, for the same affordable price.”
Ontex Australia Director Rod Evans said: "The decision by Woolworths to partner with us recognises our ongoing joint commitment to Australian manufacturing and serving Australian families with locally produced, high quality baby care products.
“Woolworths’ support of Australian manufacturing, and specifically Ontex at Eastern Creek, greatly assists in the ongoing viability of our local business, provides employment opportunities and helps nurture the well-being of Aussie families."
