The Lake District

Welcome to our home!

When other brands left the UK to cut costs, we stayed. Why? Because we rely on our world-class farms here at home to craft the world’s most natural baby formula.

We believe the best ingredients are those grown locally. We believe in supporting local family farmers and farms. We believe our children deserve a better baby milk.

Local supply chain means traceability, sustainability and knowing every step of the process, from farm to formula.

At Kendal Nutricare we are incredibly proud to manufacture the only baby milk made in the UK and to serve millions of parents worldwide.

Kendamil, Natural from farm to formula

Our Whole Milk Philosophy

Whole Milk Fats

Alongside our British heritage and other recipe innovations, Kendamil is perhaps best known for our unique inclusion of whole milk in our formula.

Whereas the industry standard is for the fat in infant formula to be entirely derived from vegetable fats, Kendamil uniquely uses full cream whole milk as a source of fat in its recipe. As well as bringing us closer to the gold standard of breastmilk with the inclusion of mammals milk fat, our reduced reliance on vegetable oils allows us to avoid palm oil and focus on more preferable sources of essential fatty acids.

Our Home

The Lake District

Kendal is located in the English Lake District, a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to some of your favourite characters like Peter Rabbit and Postman Pat. It isn’t always sunny (or dry!) but it creates the perfect climate for our happy cows and organic farms. Regular rainfall enriches the grass with minerals that our Jersey cows munch on year-round.
