Dairy Goat Co-operative (DGC) are the pioneers of commercialised infant formula from goats’ milk. Since that breakthrough in 1988 we have continued to lead clinical advances in this field. As a result, we are now in 30 markets worldwide- more than any other goat milk infant formula.
Breast milk is the preferred way to feed a baby and is important for baby’s health. Introducing partial bottle feeding could negatively affect breastfeeding. Professional advice should be sought before using an infant formula. Good maternal nutrition is essential for breastfeeding, and reversing a decision not to breastfeed can be difficult.
Proper use of an infant formula product is essential to the infant’s health. Infant formulas should be used as directed.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) adopted the International Code of Marketing Breast-milk Substitutes in 1981.
The Code aims to provide safe and adequate infant nutrition through the protection and promotion of breastfeeding and by ensuring the proper use of breast-milk substitutes, when necessary, based on adequate information and through appropriate marketing and distribution.
As a responsible manufacturer of infant formula, DGC (Dairy Goat Co-operative (N.Z.) Ltd) support the Code and unequivocally supports breastfeeding as the best source of nutrition for babies and infants.
