LactaLogics and Scholle IPN to develop aseptic baby food packaging

The companies aim to provide premature infants with access to human milk packaged in aseptic pouches and cartons.

US-based baby food company LactaLogics has finalised a partnership with flexible packaging manufacturer Scholle IPN for developing aseptic packaging technology.

The companies have partnered after carrying out a packaging research and development phase.

The collaboration will involve integrating Scholle IPN’s solutions with LactaLogics’ Gentle-UHT processing capabilities to deliver safe human milk-based products for infants in pharmaceutical-grade packaging.

This will provide hospital newborn intensive care units (NICUs) with access to shelf-stable, ready-to-serve human milk and human milk fortifiers packaged in aseptic pouches and cartons.

Scholle IPN business development manager Andrew Lively said: “Our aseptic packaging, especially as it relates to pharmaceuticals, protects delicate products from contamination and outside environmental factors, which is critical when feeding premature infants.

“The ability to combine this with shelf-stability and controlled, precise dosing delights us as we look forward to the positive impact of our packaging on the lives of premature infants.”

The new packaging solution is designed to maintain the reliability and safety of LactaLogics’ human milk-based products.

It is part of the company’s commitment to giving all premature infants access to an exclusive human milk diet.

LactaLogics co-founder and chief operating officer Chelly Snow said: “Our partnership with Scholle IPN will give hospitals access to aseptic packaging technology.

“Human milk will not require refrigeration and open-air mixing will be minimised, revolutionising the way human milk is administered.”

LactaLogics aims to provide ‘purpose-driven, transparent and collaborative practices’ for infant nutrition by combining advanced technology and holistic donor care.

The company is based in Port Saint Lucie, Florida.

In September last year, Scholle IPN designed and produced tethered fitment solutions for spouted pouches.

The caps can be recycled together with the whole packages and are designed to support a circular economy and minimise environmental impact.
