Wyeth Nutrition range of products will now be marketed in Sri Lanka through George Steuart Health (Pvt) Ltd., the company announced last week.
Wyeth Nutrition, a global leader in child nutrition, has sought representation through the most acclaimed distributors worldwide. The company has now partnered with George Steuart Health to market and distribute its child nutrition products in Sri Lanka; a range which was formerly marketed by George Steuart Health in the late 80’s.
Over the past 100 years, Wyeth Nutrition has focused on enhancing the quality of life of children in the first 1000 days, through high quality, innovative and science-proven nutrition. The research centre of Wyeth Nutrition has embarked on several research-based projects, to better understand and advance the global nutrition science, aiming at continuous improvement of future product development.
Proper nutrition is fundamental to a child’s continued health, from birth through adulthood. Good nutrition during the first 3 years of life is vital for healthy growth and development, particularly due to its role in lowering morbidity and mortality, reducing the risk of chronic disease throughout their life span, and promoting regular mental and physical development.
“S-26 Gold Progress 3” and “S-26 Gold Promise 4” milk formulae are formulated for children aged 1-3 years and 3-5 respectively. Through scientific research, world- class manufacturing and product safety standards, Wyeth Nutrition aims to deliver scientifically sound solutions that offer parents confidence to help nourish children.
