Breastfeeding is the best for babies and a healthy diet / maternal nutrition is important when breastfeeding. A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse. Infant formula is suitable from birth when babies are not breastfed. It is recommended that all formula milks be used on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian, pharmacist, or other professional responsible for maternal and child care and the financial implications should be considered. All preparation and feeding instructions should be followed carefully as inappropriate preparation could lead to health hazards.


Dumex Mamil Gold: A Part of Danone Nutricia, One of Europe’s Leading Baby Milk Company

What makes a brand trustworthy and reliable? What makes its users loyal to a brand? For a brand like Dumex, it was the trustworthy relationship between the brand and caring mothers – the result of all the years of effort and hard work we put in. This, of course, is no easy feat as Dumex has a long and illustrious history as part of Danone Nutricia, a company known for its breakthroughs in baby milk and nutrition.

How Danone Nutricia came to be

Originally known as Nutricia, the company was founded in 1896 by two brothers, Jan and Martinus van der Hagen, in the Netherlands. The siblings were inspired by the work of Professor Backhaus, who had succeeded in developing an infant formula. As this groundbreaking development came in a period when infant mortality was high, the van der Hagen brothers then began working on infant formulas.

Fast forward to nearly three decades later in 1923, the first nutritional guidelines for infants were released, and in 1946, the first Research Centre for Baby and Medical Nutrition in Zoetermeer was established. Several company milestones followed, such as the first publication on preterm nutritional solutions in 1975 and more – allowing for parents, medical practitioners and nutritionists to understand child nutrition better.

However, the most important milestone yet, which has proven to play a big part in all Dumex products even until now, is when Nutricia filed a patent on their unique prebiotics mix of galacto-oligosaccharides and long chain fructo-oligosaccharides (GOS/IcFOS) 9:1. This innovative concoction promotes a healthy gut in children and builds immunity.

Finally, in 2007, Nutricia officially became part of Danone, joining in their global mission to bring health through food to as many people as possible.1

Family health and safety are both a promise and priority

Today, the Danone Nutricia organisation is up and running throughout the world and represented by over 100,000 employees, 500 scientists as well as nutritionists, product technologists and other specialists. There are 190 production plants in more than 60 countries with research and innovation locations in Europe, North America, Asia and Latin America, all members of the organisation have only one scope and goal in mind: to take care of you and your family’s health, safety and develop tailor-made solutions for specific nutritional needs.2

Early nutrition education and development

Danone Nutricia believes that providing a child with the right nutrition early in life—especially in the first 1000 days—will allow for optimum growth and development, and this will directly contribute to wellbeing and lifelong health3. As a science-based nutritional organisation, our products provide proven health benefits which meet parents’ needs and support their children’s healthy start in life. After all, the right nutrition will avoid risks of long-term health complications such as obesity, allergy, diabetes and gut discomfort4.

Our methods and approach

Danone Nutricia has spent years upon years in pursuit of the understanding of the complex interactions between organs and systems. We also explore how the right nutrition in early life can enable the body to fight and cope with challenges as well as build immunity towards diseases.

Due to our presence across the globe and our access to clinical research networks in various geographical locations, we are able to tap into the studies of early life nutrition, gut microbiota and the functions of developing body systems such as the immune system. Through our extensive experiments and clinical studies, we are able to evaluate the safety and efficacy of early life nutrition before products get to the market, and then to you and your loved one.4

Our beliefs and proven track record

In our care and precision in ensuring quality Dumex products reach families, Danone Nutricia became one of the leading baby milk companies in Europe*.

As Dumex is part of Groupe Danone, a Fortune 500 company and one of the most successful healthy food companies in the world, the brand is considered a specialist in child nutrition; a trusted brand in baby and child nutrition in Singapore since 1959.

We believe that children are the foundation of a healthy Singapore. In doing so, we are able to support parents in shaping the nutritional habits of the children and nurturing a healthier generation.3
