Infant Formula

Filling and packaging solutions for infant formula

OPTIMA – Your partner for the processing of powdered baby foods

Baby milk provides babies with exactly what they need in their first months of life: essential nutrients that protect their immune systems. Baby food must meet the most stringent standards. This requires high-quality infant formula in combination with safe filling and packaging processes.
Our company has over 40 years of experience with long-standing partner companies in the filling of infant formula products and has evolved in step with the increasing demands of the market. The synergy effects within the Optima Group are particularly beneficial in this field of application.

Optima Consumer benefits from Optima Pharma's extensive experience with pharmaceutical standards. This assures you of the safe processes and comprehensive expertise required for packaging infant formula.
Optima offers the core of such a production line from a single source and implements both individual machines as well as turnkey solutions with all of the process steps. Our service employees in our 20 branches in Germany and abroad will make sure spare parts arrive quickly at your location and that your production flows smoothly.
