Gold Coast, QLD (June 29 2023) — Sprout Organic Pty Ltd (“Sprout” or the “Company”), the Queensland company behind Australia's first vegan and organic infant formula today announced it has signed an agreement with Drakes, the largest independent grocery retailer in Australia.


With 70+ locations throughout Queensland and South Australia, the Drakes partnership provides Sprout Organic with critical access to families seeking plant-based nutrition for their children. The Drakes announcement follows Sprout’s most recent national roll-out with Chemist Warehouse and Terry White.


“By partnering with the largest independent grocery retailer in Australia, Sprout Organic is furthering its mission to revolutionise the kids nutrition industry, offering sustainable and nutritious plant-based alternatives to traditional dairy and soy,” said Selasi Berdie, CEO of Sprout Organic.


“Being a part of Drakes distribution network is also a major step forward for our retail growth strategy. Our focus on organic, allergy-friendly and plant-based ingredients has positioned us as a leading disruptor in this market with distribution in over 2,000 retail stores, formal distribution into three countries, and e-commerce sales into 45+ countries.”


Drakes Supermarkets was recognised as the Retailer of the Year at the 2023 National Retail Association Awards in recognition of its dedication to excellence in customer service and delivering a wide range of high-quality products.
