The maker of the brand, Kleenex says it will no longer be selling the popular tissue in Canada.
Kimberly-Clark, the manufacturer of Kleenex said it has no other option than to pull the tissue off the market.
In a statement, Todd Fisher, Kimberly-Clark Canadian vice-president and general manager, said its Kleenex business has been faced with “unique complexities” in Canada. “We have been operating in a highly constrained supply environment, and despite our best efforts we have been faced with some unique complexities on the Kleenex business.”
The company’s other brands will remain.
Kleenex professional facial products and Kleenex consumer hand towel products will remain in the Canadian market, as well as other Kimberly-Clark brands, including Cottonelle, Viva, U by Kotex, Poise, Depend, Huggies, Pull-Ups and Goodnites.
