PALO ALTO, Calif. – Baby bottle maker, Adiri, has shut down, citing financial pressures. The company’s Web site offers a message:
“We at Adiri would like to thank our loyal customers, retailers and partners for all the support you have provided Adiri and its products over the years. Unfortunately, due to the financial pressures that many businesses face today, we made the difficult decision to cease all business operations. With gratitude, we wish you all the best of luck. Warmest regards, the Adiri team.”
Adiri manufactured bottles designed with the help of doctors, moms and lactation consultants. The company started in 2000 with the debut of the Breastbottle Nurser.
The newest design was the Natural Nurser bottle, which was 100% BPA- and polycarbonate-free and had a “fill, twist and feed” system.
The company racked up awards in the last few years. In 2008 alone, it won awards from iParentin, International Forum, Creative Child Magazine, Mom’s Best, Spark Design, Business Week, D&AD, ID Magazine, Medical Design Excellence and Red Dot Design.
Adiri products were distributed internationally, promoting early parent-child bonding around the world. Some of the major chains that carried the bottles are Babies“R”Us, BuyBuyBaby, Giggle, Target, Day One and Whole Foods Market.
We would love your feedback!
