For more than 80 years, Abbott Nutrition has been well recognized as one of the world's most respected names for nutritional products. Health care professionals and their patients look to us for solutions — and partnerships — that encompass every stage of life for essential growth, development, and well-being.
As a division of Abbott, we remain committed to the highest standards of quality, excellence, and innovation, as well as to the tenets upon which our company was founded — providing innovative and superior nutrition that advances the quality of life for people of all ages.
By combining nutritional science with advanced technology, we have created true innovations. Our cutting-edge science is behind some of the world's most trusted names in the nutritional market for babies and children – from infant and follow-on formulas, to growing-up milks that support healthy growth and development throughout the school years.
For nearly a century, Abbott has been an integral part of the communities where it operates, serving those communities in their pursuit of healthy lives. This has been the enduring legacy of Abbott – passionately and thoughtfully translating science into lasting contributions to health. Our "Promise for Life" is a statement that describes what we believe in, what we value, and what we strive to deliver in our day-to-day work.
The principles of our values and our commitment to improving patients' lives also extend to humanitarian causes. We recognize that as a leading provider of innovative health care products, we have a unique responsibility and opportunity to ensure people have access to them – whether they are among the poor and underprivileged or are victims of natural disasters. Our success in this arena has been recognized by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index – the leading benchmark in the citizenship arena – which recognizes only the top performing 10 percent of the world's 2,500 largest companies.

Abbott is a leading manufacturer of infant formulas. We agree with medical and health organizations throughout the world that breastfeeding is the best form of infant nutrition and should be the first choice for babies. When an alternative to breastfeeding is necessary or chosen, we offer high quality infant formulas and nutritional products. We comply with all relevant laws, regulations, and promotional standards around the world. This includes adhering to principles of the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes -- also known as the World Health Organization (WHO) Code as adapted and implemented by local governments.
We provide materials that help educate physicians, nurses, midwives, and others on the latest breastfeeding information and advice, as well as materials that health care professionals can use to help new mothers and families learn the basics of infant nutrition and health care.
When breastfeeding is not an option, iron–fortified infant formula is the only safe, nutritious, and recommended alternative. Infant formula provides a superior alternative to less-healthy, home-based breast milk substitutes such as raw cow's milk or rice water.
There are many factors that may impact feeding decisions, including cultural, societal, economic, and health factors, as well as the recommendations of health care professionals. We support parents' and health care professionals' freedom to access information on all available feeding options as per local requirements.
Abbott is committed to continuous innovation and to developing formulas that perform as close to the gold standard of breast milk as possible.
