Quality of ingredients is paramount when it comes to infant nutrition and the milk supply from our 4,800 farms is a great place to start. Through adherence to Open Source, our Sustainability and Quality Assurance code, our farmers produce a high quality, fully traceable milk supply from Farm to Customer. But that’s just the beginning - it takes a combination of nutritional expertise and advanced dairy technology to provide customers in this competitive space with progressive ingredient solutions that support global brands. The development of our new high-spec infant formula (IF) grade facility at Belview means that we’re better equipped than ever to drive innovation in this growing sector and supply the specialised ingredients requirements of our IF customers.
Health and wellness
Delivering calcium, protein and a variety of essential nutrients, dairy plays a significant role in the health and wellness sector.
