About The Infant Nutrition Council

The infant formula industry has spent many years studying breast milk and knows the value of good nutrition for infants and the unique and unsurpassed benefits of breast milk. However, when a baby does not receive breast milk the only suitable and safe alternative is a scientifically developed infant formula product.

INC represents the major manufacturers and marketers of infant formula and toddler milk drinks in Australia and New Zealand as well as local companies who are producing product for export. All members abide by a Code of Conduct.

INC has strong relationships with key Australian and New Zealand government departments and agencies. It works in partnership with government to protect the Australian and New Zealand brands and to support the public health goals for the protection and promotion of breastfeeding and, when needed, infant formula as the only suitable alternative.

INC also works with local and international regulators to advance infant nutrition. INC advocates to ensure that the regulatory environment includes the benefits provided by global research and the consideration of global trade and harmonisation with international food standards. Join INC 



The Australia-New Zealand infant nutrition industry is recognised the world over for producing safe and quality infant formula. Product safety and timely supply is at the heart of everything the Infant Nutrition Council and its member companies stand for, and this is especially so during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

Along with supply chain partners and retailers, we are working hard to ensure sufficient supplies of infant formula are reaching store shelves in Australia and New Zealand, and overseas markets, in order to meet the nutritional requirements of babies and toddlers who rely on it every day.

Parents, caregivers and healthcare professionals can be assured that infant formula from Australia and New Zealand – two of the world’s big success stories in the fight against COVID-19 – remains safe, and that the strictest quality and safety standards, including hygiene measures, remain in place across the value chain.

The Infant Nutrition Council is closely monitoring developments on the pandemic in Australia and New Zealand and across the world, and has identified the access points for daily news updates and latest facts and figures. Click here for more
