Taking quality standards further

We ensure a high standard of quality for every early life nutrition ingredient we develop. And because we have so much passion for what we do, complete compliance is always just the starting point. We’re always looking for new ways to improve quality and convenience for brands, to meet the needs of parents and their children alike.

For us, quality relies on FoQus. We monitor and control every step in the production of our dairy ingredients with FrieslandCampina’s FoQus quality system. FoQus ensures we maintain high-quality nutrition as well as good operating standards at every member dairy farm, at every ingredient factory, and throughout our entire supply chain, until the final ingredient is delivered to our customer.

Quality with nature in mind

We believe it’s essential to reassure parents that the nutritional products they choose are always of the highest safety and quality standards. Early life nutrition brands must ensure the ingredients they work with are of high quality and comply with strict regulations Stricter than those that apply to foods for the general population, but also taking into account the differences between regions and which can change significantly over time. We ensure our ingredients and solutions are tailored to the unique needs of early life nutrition markets around the globe.

Our robust ingredient science is supported by extensive consumer research. Recently, we conducted global surveys into what both parents and health care professionals (HCPs) are looking for when it comes to early life nutrition solutions.
