Danone Nutricia Australia
With over 100 years of caring for babies and 50 years of ongoing research into breast milk and early life nutrition, Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition combines science and experience to support parents, carers and healthcare professionals.
Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition is part of Groupe Danone, a Fortune 500 company and one of the most successful health food companies in the world, focused on Dairy, Water and Medical Nutrition, as well as Early Life Nutrition.
Karitane began in 1907 in New Zealand where it was founded by Sir Truby King, a well-respected doctor who was concerned with the high infant mortality rate. His motto was "Breast fed is best fed", however this was a time when there was no alternative available for mothers who were unable to breast feed their infants, resulting in the high mortality rate. Dr King was convinced that at least half the infant deaths occurring in the first year of life were preventable. He then began opening clinics and experimented with milk formula with extraordinary success, and was credited as saving the lives of three babies every day.
Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition is dedicated to improving the generations of today and tomorrow through early life nutrition with care, understanding and expertise. Early life nutrition, from preconception through to toddlerhood, can have an impact that lasts a lifetime. It can play a significant role on the development of the brain and immune system, as well as how the body metabolically reacts to foods or nutrients. Danone Nutricia is committed to encouraging healthy, balanced nutrition for mothers, babies and toddlers through our products, services and unconditional support.
As a manufacturer of a range of Infant Formula products, Toddler Nutritional Supplements and Pregnancy and Breast Feeding Supplements, Danone Nutricia complies with strict food safety and quality laws and regulations, as well as equally important industry standards and agreements.
