Rapid Growth and Innovation
True category leaders, Perrigo Nutritionals has set the benchmark for key innovations in infant formula products compared to national brand competitors.
- March 2006 – With U.S. consumers turning to organic products, Perrigo Nutritionals created the first Organic Milk-Based Infant Formula with DHA and ARA that also contains organic whey, nonfat milk, and lactose.
- May 2007 – With the popularity of vanilla-flavored formulas for toddlers on the rise, Perrigo Nutritionals created a national brand equivalent formula that was available at Meijer stores more than two years before a similar product by Enfamil® launched nationally.
- July 2008 – Perrigo Nutritionals developed a prebiotic formula for export to the Chinese market in 2004. Following a stringent regulatory review process, Perrigo Nutritionals was the first manufacturer to receive FDA approval of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) as a prebiotic ingredient.
Looking to the future, Perrigo Nutritionals continues to develop new product innovations to appeal to all parent choices and infant nutrition needs.
