HOCHDORF started producing and selling a cereal-based infant formula in Switzerland in 1908 under the name of «Bébé-Kindermehl». Today, the range of infant formulas has increased. Even more than 100 years later, many parents worldwide still trust our high-quality Swiss infant formulas.
A product range tailored to specific needs
No baby is the same. At HOCHDORF we offer a wide range of infant, young children's and junior formulas as well as specific products for malnutrition. Premature infants have different nutritional needs than toddlers. They in turn have different requirements to pre-school children or schoolchildren. Depending on the cultural background, it is quite normal that children up to six years of age still use special adapted milk products. HOCHDORF provides specialty products that are designed to support the health and resilience of infants or toddlers. This also includes our products for malnutrition, which can be used from the age of one year until old age.
