Ora-Blend and Ora-Blend SF: Supply issue

Supply issue Active

Update on supply issues for Ora-Blend (2377217) and Ora-Blend SF (2377225).

30 June 2022 Update

We're hearing from pharmacists that Ora-Sweet and Ora-Sweet SF are unavailable. We are working with the supplier to understand the stock situation. We appreciate the frustration this is causing pharmacists. 

Product availability

We are advised that a small supply of Ora-Blend has been released to wholesalers. 

The supply of Ora-Blend SF remains constrained. A small delivery is expected and the supplier is says it is likely to be available early July 2022, once it has gone through quality assurance processes. 

Ora-Plus is out of stock. We are working with the supplier on resupply timeframes. 

We appreciate the lack of these products is challenging to pharmacists. We are looking into solutions.

Who to contact

In the first instance, we recommend pharmacists talk to wholesalers. We are aware of delays throughout the supply chain, many of which we do not have visibility over.
