Belourthe opens baby milk line



Version française


This huge investment ensures production of high quality formulas

Active in the baby cereals production for over 10 years, BELOURTHE inaugurated in September its line for baby milk powder.

“The line required over one year of planning, building, installing and testing” – says Vincent Crahay, BELOURTHE’s C.E.O.. “We are sure that we are adding a tremendous advantage to our clients. They can now source from the same plant the two most important lines of baby foods: cereals and milk formulas”.

A new closed area inside BELOURTHE’s plant was specially built for the milk line. The atmosphere in the area is controlled and the air is filtered and cooled, to avoid any cross contamination. Rapid mixing equipment and advanced powder transport technology delivers structured and homogeneous milk powders, that are unctuous and easy to reconstitute.

Pauline Tillieux, R&D engineer at BELOURTHE and one of the responsible for the project, enumerates some of the measures taken to ensure the highest food safety level: “Among other things, we can gas the cans, injecting a mix of azote and CO2 that prevents oxidation of fats and ensures longer shelf-life. We have water and metal detectors, and a UV emission tube that improves the quality of the products”.

Belourthe is very flexible and can adapt the baby milk production to diverse formulations, according to the regulations, requirements of each market and the client’s targets. Fortification can be customised with different levels of nutritional components such as DHA, ARA, GOS, FOS, NUCLEOTIDES,… Belourthe can deliver its formulas at very competitive prices.


The line has a capacity for 120 cans per minute (400g and 900g).

BELOURTHE is already producing premium and standard infant formulas stage 1, 2 and 3.



Branded or private label

Formulas are available with brands NINOLAC and FORTILAC. But most of the capacity of the new line will be dedicated to private labels.

Certified quality

As all the other products made by BELOURTHE, the infant formulas are certified for their quality by BRC and IFS.
