Nutricia Liverpool is a site dedicated to the product development and manufacture of foods for special medical purposes. With over 100 years of experience, we are committed in developing and producing products from carefully controlled small-volume requirements for individual patients, through to bulk orders for global distribution.

About Nutricia

The Liverpool site, with 270 employees, is based within easy reach of Liverpool’s vibrant city centre, its four universities, healthcare infrastructure and two international airports. In 2010, the international foods group Danone made a £20m investment in Liverpool to upgrade its hi-tech medical foods manufacturing facility on Wavertree Boulevard.

The three-year improvements programme was centred on Nutricia Liverpool, part of Nutricia Advanced Medical Nutrition previously known as SHS International, before its acquisition by the Netherlands-based Medical Division of Danone (France).

It is now part of the specialised healthcare unit of Danone which develops and manufactures medical nutrition for many types of consumers and patients at all stages of life, but particularly early life nutrition and specialised metabolic disorders.

​Our link with technology at the Utrecht Centre, The Netherlands, combined with the proximity of a factory and pharma environment, is key to our success. Working closely with cross-functional teams such as Quality and Operations, facilitates the execution of new product development from concept to launch. Together with our Research team in Utrecht, we are dedicated to creating and producing specialised clinical nutrition products which can offer the opportunity of a better quality of life to our patients.

Product Development is committed to rapidly developing globally compliant liquid and powdered products with proven benefits that address real patient and consumer needs. We pride ourselves in our ability to design, develop and commercialise innovative technical solutions for new and existing products. We recognise our people are our greatest asset and without them, we would not be who we are today!
