Science through early life

 Nutrition and Growth

Our passion is to understand how nutrition impacts growth, development and body composition. We have over 40 years of research helping us to develop nutritional solutions to support optimal growth in infants.

Digestive Health

We believe that good nutrition is critical for life-long health and can influence rapidly developing organs and body systems. The development of the gastrointestinal tract is not complete at birth so optimal nutrition supports the healthy development of the digestive and metabolic system.

Immunity & Allergy

We have 40 years of research in immunity and remain committed to furthering our understanding of the immune system and its role in long term health protection. We are currently partnering with experts to better understand the interaction between nutrition and the immune system and how this can nurture future health.

Human Milk Research

Human milk is the best source of nourishment for infants worldwide. Breastfeeding has numerous known benefits for infants and mothers, both short- and long-term. Our research strives to further investigate and support breastfeeding and to consider human milk as our inspiration to innovate.
