Quality, Efficacy & Safety
You Can Trust

For more than 30 years, the infant formula industry has trusted us to supply ingredients that meet the strictest international standards of quality, efficacy and safety.

Our integrity as a whey-based ingredients supplier is reflected in our long-term supply relationships and our ongoing research and development partnerships with some of the world’s most successful infant formula companies.

Advanced Whey Proteins

We’re experts in customised nutritional solutions for infants, producing specialised whey protein ingredients, including hydrolysed proteins with targeted molecular weight profiles, specific mineral compositions and microbiological profiles.

We have developed proprietary hydrolysis technology to produce whey protein hydrolysates that are easier to digest and absorb to enhance digestive comfort in formula-fed infants.

Trust and Traceability
– Your Natural Advantage

Our commitment to quality begins at the source. Our unique location on Ireland’s south-western seaboard is the perfect environment for sustainable dairy farming. It’s from here our farmer-owners supply the highest quality milk from grass-fed dairy herds. Complete control of our supply chain means 360-degree supply chain visibility and traceability. Beyond the farm gate, innovative, sustainable and efficient processing to ISO 9001:2015 standards secure the nutritional value of this high-quality milk.

Innovating for the Next Generation

We’re passionate about improving maternal nutrition and the earliest days of an infant’s life. That’s why we’re constantly advancing research into the compositions and bioactive fractions in milk to discover nutritional benefits most suited to specialised formulations.

Through our Food for Health Ireland research partnership, we draw on the expertise of paediatricians, food scientists, microbiologists and immunologists to better understand how dairy ingredients can enhance nutrient absorption, influence gut microbiology and immune protection and better manage inflammatory disorders and milk allergies.
