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.
Sourcing the Milk
Quality cow’s milk from dairy farms across Ireland is delivered to our Cootehill factory every day
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
The nutrients are carefully weighed before being added to each stage of Similac
Similac's 'one time processing'
The milk is processed using ‘one-time processing’* to maximise nutrient retention and heat treated to protect the formula
Once the formula is tested under our strict quality testing regimes, it is packaged into the Similac tins
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
