Baby Food Solution

Pure ingredients from pure nature

Breastmilk is the best food for babies

Using infant formulas is second to breastfeeding, a fact supported by WHO. Babies should be breastfed exclusively for 6 months, with continued breastfeeding after introduction of complementary food. A healthcare professional should be consulted before introducing infant formula or complementary food to a child’s diet.

Ingredients for your success

We at Valio recognize and understand the special requirements of babies, from infants to toddlers. That's why we offer baby food solutions and ingredients for the food industry. Our products vary from high quality fully traceable ingredients to blends and base powders that fulfill specific customer needs to consumer packaged infant and toddler formulas.


Balanced nutrition for healthy development

The nutritional values of our products always meet regulations and recommendations. This is achieved via carefully customised recipes that all our high-quality baby food solutions are based on.

Purity and safety of products

When producing our baby food solutions, we use the best technology available. We commit to regular testing and monitoring at plants and allow no allergens in our raw materials. We have all required quality management systems in place and follow existing standards for baby food contaminants and pesticides.

Fresh milk as basis for all products

All our production starts with fresh milk. Fresh high quality raw materials require less treatment (UHT), thus retaining its fresh taste and white colour. The reason why our milk is of such a high quality is due to the clean production environment in Finland and strict quality standards our farmers follow. We can guarantee that we know all our 6 000 farmers we buy milk from - and our milk is fully traceable back to the farm of its origin.

Continuing innovation

Following in the footsteps of A.I. Virtanen, the Nobel-prize winning leader of Valio R&D, our innovations have put us at the forefront of emerging trends. Today, innovation and outstanding quality are the key factors in Valio’s success. We introduce over 100 new products every year and hold over 350 patents in 50 countries. In 2016, we spent 26.5 million euros on research, product development and quality assurance.
