MATERNA – ISRAEL'S NUMBER 1 INFANT AND CHILD NUTRITION COMPANY



Materna Industries Limited Partnership was founded in 1981 as a subsidiary of Ma'abarot Products Ltd., owned by Kibbutz Ma'abarot.  Ma'abarot Products’ initial public offering on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange was in 1993 and today we are a public company.

Since our establishment Materna Industries has led the Israeli baby food market.

The company has some 120 employees, including development, production and packaging, marketing, medical information and customer service personnel.  Materna operates sophisticated technological laboratories and employs a skilled team of scientists, food engineers, chemists, biologists and dieticians who work in collaboration with other development centers in Israel and abroad with the goal of reliably providing the consumer the most advanced and innovative products in infant nutrition.

The company's production and packaging departments has accumulated considerable expertise from over twenty-five years' experience. Professionals supervising all production processes in conjunction with strict quality control by the professional laboratory assure superior product quality.

The plant operates in compliance with the internationally recognized ISO 9001 and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) standards.

As the leading company in our field in Israel, Materna has acquired expertise in infant nutrition through years of research and experience in feeding over two million babies nationally.

Materna's team of medical representatives is in regular communication with pediatricians and baby clinics throughout Israel. Materna provides information to medical professionals on subjects related to infant nutrition, presents local and international medical research and updates on our products, while emphasizing the advantages of breastfeeding as the optimum nutrition for the infant. 

Materna is committed to serving our customers not only through our advanced products but also by providing professional advice and personal support.  Materna's call center is staffed by nutrition consultants who garner information from many areas.  Answers to questions can also be received online at the company's website.

Optimum infant development

In the first year of life your baby will surprise and delight you again and again with his rapid development: from the first smile to the first time he succeeds in standing, from the first word he mumbles through to saying whole words and actually walking.
With each child, the different areas of development (motor, language and social skills) mature at the infant's own pace. At the end of the development process these accomplishments are not uniform – each child develops individually. Try not to compare your baby to others and make sure to continue with developmental checkups and follow-ups by your pediatrician.

The range of Materna products is formulated for each stage in your baby's development, helping him to develop the motor, cognitive and emotional skills he needs as he matures.

Materna Triple Formula


We at Materna know that breast milk is the best food for your baby and therefore it is the ideal to which we aspire.  Materna's "Triple Formula" is the only infant formula that contains the unique ingredients found in breast milk that contribute to your baby's development, immune function and easy digestion.  Should you decide to start using a formula, it is important that you choose one that is most similar in composition to breast milk and contains all the ingredients essential for your child's development.

Digestion


The only baby formula containing betapol oil
Research has proved that betapol, a vegetable fat blend that closely mimics the physical and chemical structure of human milk fat, helps calm digestion, facilitates bowel movements, and alleviates gas while promoting the optimum absorption of food components.  The 60:40 protein ratio also promotes good digestion.

Development


Materna contains LC-PUFA of the Omega 3 and Omega 6 family
Research has proved that LC-PUFA contributes to mental development (IQ) and to the development of the brain.  Minerals such as iron and calcium are also necessary for proper physical development and to build the skeleton.

Immunity
Materna contains bio-probiotics in the Stage 2 and 3 products
The bio-probiotics found in breast milk are "friendly" bacteria that help the body to fight against harmful bacteria and thus help to strengthen the body's natural defenses.
Vitamins C and E are antioxidants and help to prevent harmful processes, strengthening the body's resistance.
