Kimberly-Clark confident with nappy supply

Kimberly-Clark Australia and New Zealand is not concerned about a disposable nappy shortage, mentioned in global media reports over the weekend following an explosion at Nippon Shokubai's plant in Himeji, producer of superabsorbent polymer used in disposable nappies.

In Australia, Kimberly-Clark locally manufactures all Huggies and Snugglers nappies for Australia and New Zealand. We are confident that there will not be any shortages of disposable nappies in the short or medium term. We are currently evaluating the ongoing supply situation with all our suppliers of superabsorbent to ensure we have a better understanding of the long term position.

We know our nappies are an essential need for mums and families and will work hard to ensure we continue to supply them without any disruption.
