A heritage of innovation
Our story starts back in The Netherlands in 1896, when a doctor, a public inspector and a salesman came together to realise the potential of medical nutrition. Over a century later, Nutricia continues to pioneer nutritional solutions that help people live longer, healthier lives.

Nutricia pioneers the concept of medical nutrition. The first product is developed to help people with diabetes and the first nutritional product for those suffering from goitre (a thyroid condition linked to a lack of iodine in the diet).
Nutricia is born. Our founders named their enterprise ‘Nutricia’ after Professor Backhaus’ laboratory, the ‘Nutricia Zentrale’, which derived its name from the latin word ‘nutrire’ (‘to feed’).
Professor Backhaus filed a patent for his innovation in infant milk formula: a more easily digestible formula inspired by breast milk, saving the lives of thousands of babies all around the world.
