Certified trustworthiness at every level
For Materna, being trustworthy means uncompromising insistence on the quality of its products and production processes, but also the recognition its know-how and industrial expertise have earned from many market players. Because it is highly specialized in prepared meals and liquid (ready-to-feed) baby milks for babies and toddlers from 0 to 36 months, Materna has developed unique expertise in its market segments.
In addition to following strict procedures throughout the manufacturing process, Materna is certified under quality standards for food safety such as the following:

In addition to these official certifications, which testify to Materna’s technical expertise and high level of quality, French and international customers also regularly perform audits of the company’s industrial facilities and procedures for food safety and quality. These audits come in addition to the regulatory requirements and official certifications, and they constitute supplementary evidence that Materna can legitimately claim to be a trustworthy manufacturer in the world of baby food.
