  1. Customer to obtain health advice

Nourishy is dedicated to assisting parents in providing their infants with nutrient-rich breast milk for an extended duration. While Nourishy's services provide convenience for many, it's essential to recognise that our services may not meet all needs. Therefore, careful consideration should be given to assess your own situation and requirements.

  1. Customer Acknowledgements and Indemnities

Breast milk is acknowledged as a crucial source of nutrients for infants, containing antibodies, beneficial bacteria, and other elements that lower the risk of infections for your baby. However, proper handling of breast milk is essential, and understanding key aspects of its storage and handling is crucial to ensure the best protection for babies.Top of Form

  1. Quality Assurance

Nourishy complies with all applicable laws, rules and regulations concerning the handling of human milk, including safety guidelines set forth by the Australian Breastfeeding Association and packaging guidelines set forth by Food Standards Australia New Zealand.

Nourishy observes strict quality control measures in connection with the handling of Customer’s breast milk. However, Nourishy cannot guarantee the safety of the processed freeze-dried breast milk provided to Customer to the extent that a risk arises from the circumstances which are out of the control of Nourishy, including the circumstances under which the breast milk was expressed, handled or stored by Customer.

Customers requesting Processing Services must ensure that:

(a) they handle and store any breast milk they send to us for Processing Services in accordance with safe breast milk handling guidelines published by Queensland Health located at https://www.health.qld.gov.au/clinical-practice/guidelines-procedures/clinical-staff/maternity/nutrition/breastfeeding/how-to/expressing-storing-breastmilk including but not limited to:

(i) Stored at -18°c in a freezer; used within 6 months and up to 12 months being acceptable if stored in a chest freezer. Thawed human milk should never be re-frozen; and

(b) they send the breast milk to us for processing using the Cooler Equipment and/or consumables provided by Nourishy and in accordance with Nourishy’s instructions notified in the Order; and

(c) Ensure that the cooler is returned only on day of the week instructed by Nourishy (Monday or Tuesday).

    Further information about Nourishy’s quality assurance protocols and our handling and testing standards, certifications and other safety and quality measures may be found at our page nourishy.com.au/pages/safety-1.
      To ensure the safety and quality of the Processing Services, Nourishy will not process any Customer’s breast milk that fails to meet Nourishy’s criteria for safe freeze drying processing as determined by Nourishy (our “Processing Standard”).

          If any of the Customer’s breast milk (in whole or in part) fails to meet Nourishy’s Processing Standard, or cannot be freeze-dried or processed for any other reason as determined by Nourishy’s good faith assessment, we will promptly notify the Customer and:

          (d) if Customer requests, at the Customer’s cost we may return the breast milk to the Customer at their cost, either as unprocessed frozen breast milk or we may process the breast milk at our sole discretion, in which case the returned milk (whether unprocessed or processed) must not be used for human consumption, , provided the request is advised to Nourishy within 2x working days of notification from Nourishy; or

          (e) if Customer has not requested return of their unprocessed breast milk within 2x working days of notification from Nourishy, we will discard the unprocessed breast milk in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, in which case, we will not charge you the applicable Processing Services fees for the unprocessed breast milk.

            Where we supply any Cooler Equipment, it is supplied to you in accordance with the relevant third-party manufacturer’s usage instructions, specifications and warranty, unless otherwise agreed by us. Nourishy takes no responsibility for any Cooler Equipment malfunction or warranty support.
              We retain ownership of and title to the Cooler Equipment at all times. If the Cooler Equipment is not returned to Nourishy, we reserve the right to invoice the Customer for the costs of the Cooler Equipment and the costs of shipping to the Customer’s address.

                Where the Customer uses other cooler storage equipment or consumables that are not supplied by us, we take no responsibility for the quality of or performance of such equipment or consumables, including the ability of that equipment to maintain the required storage temperatures.
