Qiara probiotic stock restricted for August / September

The latest COVID lockdown has directly impacted our manufacturer located in a NSW “red zone”. Simply speaking, travel restrictions have meant some machine operators and supervisory staff are unable to get to the factory. With sachet packing lines unable to run, output for Qiara products has been reduced by almost 70%.

Until the situation eases, only limited quantities of Qiara Pregnancy & Breastfeeding are able to be produced. Even when the restrictions are lifted, the lead time from starting a production run to shipping is about 3 weeks, so we are not expecting Qiara Infant, Kids or Adult will be available at all before October.

To all our wonderful customer mums and dads, stockists and fans, we want to thank you for your patience and there is some good news on the horizon.

We know our products help, because you tell us every day and please know that we have been working very hard to get you more Qiara stock. Getting access to manufacturing capacity in Australia for the last 12 pandemic filled months has been almost impossible but we are almost there. When the lockdown eases, new sachet filling lines will (finally) be commissioned and lots more product will start flowing onto shelves, but it will take a little time.

In the meantime, we will do our best to allocate the limited stock as best we can between our website and stockists, but we will only be able to fulfill a small portion of orders.

There’s not much else we can do except encourage everyone to stay safe by following the health advice and if you can, get vaccinated. Thanks again for your continued support for our female led Australian business.
