Hain Celestial has announced the launch of its co-branded Earth’s Best and Zhi Ling Tong organic infant formula in China under its venture with Hutchison China Meditech (Chi-Med).

The product will be produced in Switzerland under an exclusive agreement with an independent supplier, Hain said today (20 September).

“Our entry into the Chinese market through Hutchison Hain Organic continues with Chi-Med’s highly regarded Zhi Ling Tong brand of infant products working together with our Earth’s Best brand,” said Irwin Simon, president and CEO of Hain Celestial.

The move is part of a joint venture between Hain Celestial and Chi-Med, which was announced nearly a year ago, creating a company called Hutchison Hain Organic Holdings. Hutchison Hain Organic began marketing and distributing other Hain Celestial products earlier this year through AS Watson and ParknShop stores in Asia.
