HUGGIES® is a National Partner of Plunket, with a proud involvement for over 25 years. We have similar goals, that is to provide the very best care for baby.
The HUGGIES® Brand was launched in New Zealand in 1992 with a focus on taking care of “change time” from newborn right through to toilet training. Products include top quality disposable nappies (which are clinically proven to help prevent nappy rash), nappy pants, baby wipes and change mats.
There are about 140 babies born every day in New Zealand of which Plunket see around 90%. We’re very fortunate to have Plunket, there is no other support service like it anywhere else in the world. For more than a century Plunket, as New Zealand’s largest provider of services to support the health and development of children under five, is dedicated to working with parents and communities to ensure children in New Zealand get the best start in life. That is the reason why HUGGIES® has donated over $9 million to help support mums and their babies at such a crucial stage of life. Plunket’s services support families nationwide, through more than 420 branches, mobile clinics and a free 24 hour phone service, PlunketLine – 0800 933 922.
For both HUGGIES® and Plunket, birth is just the beginning of our support for the precious under-five journey. We are proudly behind our newest New Zealanders.
