Shop Cuts Costs of Sanitary Products

July 25, 2018

Countdown is cutting the prices of 15 in-house branded sanitary products, some by up to 48 percent, to make them more affordable for women and girls across the country.


Corporate affairs general manager Kiri Hannifin says with period poverty both a worldwide phenomenon and a reality in New Zealand, the company wanted to step in and do its part.


Laura Henderson, one of the founders of Wellington-based cooperative Go with the Flow which collects and distributes sanitary products to those who need them most, applauded the move by Countdown.


She says big kudos to them for jumping on board ... to have recognition from major companies is a huge step in the right direction.


Countdown's move to lower the price of its Homebrand and Select tampons and pads is expected to save customers $750,000 a year.
