conscious and have a much better understanding of the link between nutrition and health. So it’s definitely an area where we would like to be investing.
QWhat does innovation
look like for you?
By bringing these two companies together as Nutricia, we are able to invest in a big research and innovation team.
We have a remarkable team of roughly seven hundred. We all have a real sense of purpose, working on products beneficial to society. They are driven by the knowledge that our R&D is relied on by some people to stay alive. That is not lost on us.
We are focused on much more innovation in the near future in the specialised nutrition space encompassing input nutrition, other categories and life stages.
At the moment probiotics in combination with foods is a hot topic, from baby digestion through to later in life. How can we make infant formula closer to breast milk because of course breast milk is the gold standard. But when breast milk is not possible, how can the infant formula be the best possible?
With health ageing, we don’t have the products or the ideal portfolio yet, but there’s much research being done right now, so that in a few years from now we can have many products in the market.
and we’re only now seeing a good level of market penetration and adoption for a commercialised product. The development cycle can be slow, but it has to be understood and accepted given the nature of the products we’re creating.

don’t just launch products without enough evidence to prove the benefits we’re talking about.
We’re an extremely ethical company. It can mean we are slower to market, but once we’re there, we want to be known for products that are clinically proven to work. ✷
