We have learned a great deal from our experiences, and we recognise our responsibility to go beyond what were common marketing standards in the past.
We commercialise our breast milk substitutes in accordance with the WHO
Code as implemented by national governments everywhere in the world. In 152 countries where there is a potential higher risk to the health of babies, we don’t advertise or promote infant formula and follow-on formula for infants up to 12 months, and we don’t give free samples of these products to mothers, or free supplies to health care facilities.
We’ve implemented extensive procedures to ensure that we stand by our commitments, including training of all our employees who work in infant nutrition, regular internal and external audits of our practices, and implementation of whistleblowing procedures.
We are committed to continually improve our practices and when we find mistakes we strive to learn from them and put them right as rapidly as possible.
As a result of our work in this area, we are the first, and so far the only, infant formula manufacturer included in the FTSE 4Good responsible investment index
