120 Years of caring
At Nutricia, we combine over 120 years of caring for babies with 40 years of scientific research and expertise to be the enablers for both parents and healthcare professionals.
We are constantly working towards improving our offerings. Be it our products for mothers, babies and toddlers, or our services for parents and healthcare professionals. When it comes to making a contribution to the field of early life nutrition, we are always striving to do better.
Our aim is to support your child’s development and well-being at key milestones in their life through innovative and nutritional solutions that are rooted in science and acknowledged by health leaders.
Nutricia was created in 1901 following Martinus and Jan va der Hagen’s first infant milk formula based on professor Backhaus’s research.
In 1945, Aptamil began a long-term research program with the mission of learning from the natural benefits of breast milk. This resulted in Aptamil as a brand launching its first infant milk formula in Europe. Today it is available in over 90 countries around the world.
Aptamil has always been a brand name that is synonymous with science. Since 1954, it has been our mission to study the natural benefits of breast milk and leverage our findings through breakthrough innovations.
Thanks to the dedication of over 400 scientists and experts working in collaboration with universities and research institutions worldwide, we are the pioneers of global research and development in early life nutrition.
When it comes to our offering, innovation is reflected in not just our product formula but also our packaging. Because we believe that the brand as a whole is just as important as the benefits our products offer.
- In 1992, we became the first to add LCP to our infant milk formula.
- In 2002, we were the first to acquire European patents of scGOS/IcFOS prebiotic ration.
- In 2014, we became the first to prove that the combination of LCP and scCOS/IcFOS contributes to supporting the baby’s immunity system and defense power.
We believe that an effective development of a child’s metabolism and immune system during the first 1,000 days is crucial to helping them be ready for any changes in their environment that could affect their health.
Our vision is to shape fitter futures for babies. At Aptamil, we promote the notion that you can, today, help your child to take the future in their hands. Not by trying to control what it may bring, but by building the preparedness they need to embrace it.
Raise them ready.
