About the company

Wyeth Nutritionals Ireland is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nestlé SA, the world's largest food and beverage company. Located at Askeaton, Co Limerick, the Wyeth Nutritionals plant uses a significant quantity of locally produced high quality dairy ingredients in the manufacture of a full line of nutritional products. Its nutritional products are manufactured to pharmaceutical standards, based on the latest research to develop new and improved products to meet the needs of infants the world over. Sustainability is embedded across every point of Wyeth's operations. This has seen significant highlights including zero waste to landfill since 2015, creating new connections with the local community through its unique butterfly meadow and an indigenous tree planning programme where almost 2,000 trees have been planted adjacent to its site.

Spotlight Target Area: Packaging
For Wyeth Nutritionals, sustainable development means ensuring that the company’s
actions today do not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their
own needs. Wyeth Nutritionals has made a number of business commitments on
the quality and safety of its products, the protection of the health and safety of
its employees and contractors, and protection of the environment. The company
demonstrated a strong performance overall throughout 2020, performing particularly
well in the target areas of supplier certification, packaging, biodiversity, community
engagement, and health and nutrition, subsequently being scored exemplary across
all of these areas. In the target area of packaging, the company trialled cartons made
from recycled materials and following a successful trial period, these cartons were
sent to market and consequently helped the company to exceed its packaging weight
reduction milestone by over 30%.
