Vinamilk partners with six nutrition and bioscience companies

Vietnam's leading dairy processor Vinamilk has announced it is entering into a strategic partnership with six global nutrition and bioscience companies. The six participating companies are DSM, Chr. Hansen, Beneo, Gnosis, AAK and Kanematsu, operating in Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Sweden, and Japan, respectively. Through these strategic collaborations, Vinamilk aims to deliver "international-quality" nutritional solutions featuring "superior formulations" for the younger generation of Vietnam. The collaboration reinforces Vinamilk's international reputation and its mission to provide high-quality baby milk powder of international standards. Over the years, the brand has incorporated beneficial nutrients such as HMO-2'FL fibre, BB-12TM and LGG probiotics and nucleotides into its products to bring them closer to breast milk. With the strategic partnership, Vinamilk hopes to gain access to its advanced technologies and know-how to accelerate its own product innovation. Mai Kieu Lien, CEO of Vinamilk, said: "Since its establishment, Vinamilk has been committed to continuous investment in modern production processes, the application of advanced scientific research, and the promotion of international cooperation to bring internationally standardised and the most suitable products for Vietnamese children”. She added that Vinamilk's partnership with the six global companies aids Vinamilk in its journey to achieve this goal. Bringing more value to consumers and providing high-quality and safer products for children is Vinamilk’s “highest commitment," she said. Francois Scheffler, APAC president of DSM Group Asia Pacific, stated: "DSM has cooperated with Vinamilk for many years. We have seen the company's endless efforts and overwhelming enthusiasm for developing products that meet international quality standards. Hence, I believe that with this stronger strategic partnership, Vinamilk will soon conquer the highest global standards in the dairy industry." In recognition of meeting the strictest standards related to purity and transparency, Vinamilk was awarded the 'Purity Award' for its baby formula products Optimum Gold, YokoGold, ColosGold, Pedia Kenji, Dielac Grow Plus, Dielac Alpha, and Dielac Alpha Gold by the American non-profit organisation Clean Label Project. This award recognises Vinamilk's “commitment to providing pure, safe, and nutritious products for babies and children”. The brand is said to now be the first in Asia to have achieved the Purity Award standard for its entire baby and children formula line.
