The best baby food products on the market are a result of our commitment to quality

The quality of Valio’s baby food products stems from the quality of the milk itself. It is an outcome of many fields of expertise. The Valio quality chain is unique: our comprehensive system extends throughout the production chain from dairy farm to final products. We at Valio recognize that babies have special requirements for their healthy nutrition. Our R&D department is always looking for better solutions to serve the needs of our customers.

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. 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 Finnish 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 5,300 farmers we buy milk from - and our fresh milk and whey are fully traceable back to the farm of its origin.

Continuing dairy 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 100 new products every year and hold over 300 patents in 50 countries. In 2017, we spent 28.5 million euros on research, product development and quality assurance
