From Field to Formula

Ireland is one of the world’s leading producers of infant nutrition products. This is why we choose to produce Similac exclusively in Ireland.

Here is how Ireland’s fresh milk becomes Similac.

STAGE 1

Sourcing the Milk

Quality cow’s milk from dairy farms across Ireland is delivered to our Cootehill factory every day

STAGE 2

From field to Cootehill factory

The milk is processed quickly so the milk is used fresh

Preparation rooms are highly protected to ensure the formula is produced in a hygienic environment

STAGE 3

Similac nutrients

The nutrients are carefully weighed before being added to each stage of Similac

STAGE 4

Similac's 'one time processing'

The milk is processed using ‘one-time processing’* to maximise nutrient retention and heat treated to protect the formula

STAGE 5

Quality assurance

Once the formula is tested under our strict quality testing regimes, it is packaged into the Similac tins

STAGE 6

Distribution across the UK

Thousands of tins are then delivered to Boots stores across the UK

This means that when you buy our Similac products in Boots, you can be sure your child is getting the essential ingredients to support their nutritional needs
