We are very proud to announce that Ardo is a partner in the Auckland region with the national not-for-profit organization Whānau Āwhina Plunket.
As New Zealand’s largest provider of support services for the development, health, and wellbeing of children under 5 years old, Plunket has strong values that match the values of Ardo. Similar to Plunket, we believe that the very first years of life are crucial. These are the days children learn how to express themselves with words, how to use their body, how to socialize with others and also they learn how to love and trust.
Plunket operates since 2008, and for the 13 years of its work, its Foundation has invested in many programs that help Plunket’s work with communities, ensuring no child is left behind. Whether it's a free health and development checks, a 24/7 parenting helpline, antenatal class, or a car seat installation, be sure that Plunket is here to help.
We strongly believe in the work Plunket is doing every day and, that’s why we are very proud to be a part of this journey to help as many families as possible.

What does the WHO Code mean?
The WHO Code on the marketing of mother's milk substitutes protects and supports breastfeeding. The Code determines how mother's milk substitutes may be marketed without endangering the practice of breastfeeding. The International Code makes reference to each product which is marketed as a partial or total replacement for mother’s milk, including feeding bottles and teats. The Code does not ban the sale of such products but rather defines marketing methods and the way in which businesses operate. (International Code: Article 2). The intention is, amongst other things, to suppress advertising or other forms of merchandising to the general public (Article 5.1).
What does the WHO Code mean for Ardo?
Taking into account the fact that teats may have a negative effect on the duration of breastfeeding. Currently, the subject of the WHO Code on mother’s milk substitutes is under intense discussion amongst experts in the field, in conjunction with producers of breastfeeding products. We wish to declare unequivocally – as a matter of company policy - that Ardo is completely committed to observing absolutely each and every WHO Code.

This technology ensures that there is a total barrier between the breastmilk and any pathogenic agents. “Vacuum Seal” guarantees the protection of the breast, breast milk and the breast pump against contamination.
There is no danger of cross-contamination, even when Ardo breast pumps are being used by several mums, for example when being shared in a hospital environment.
