Ausnutria Has More Than 100 Years of Experience in Milk Powder Production

Kabrita is a brand of Ausnutria and produced solely in the Netherlands. Ausnutria has their headquarters and 5 factories based in the north of the Netherlands, close to the majority of farms that supply fresh milk on a daily basis.

The history of Ausnutria and its predecessors goes back to 1897. In this year, the current production plant in Ommen was founded by Mr. Kramer. The factory is named “de Vechtstreek”, a name still proudly worn by the company premises. It was the first factory with complete and continuously operating butter making facilities. As milk production grew in the Netherlands, the factory was expanded and extra activities added. Milk powder has been produced in Ommen since 1928.

The factory of Ausnutria that now produces the base of all our infant formula is based in Kampen. The origin of this factory dates back to 1903, when it is established as the Van Heel Condensed Milk Company. At that time, the factory was situated at a different location: on Kampereiland. The factory was mainly producing condensed milk products.

Our factory in Leeuwarden was founded in 1912, under the name Lijempf (Leeuwarder IJs and Melkproducten Fabriek). At that time, our factory in Leeuwarden is the headquarters of the Lijempf group, a company that in its heyday consisted of about 19 affiliated dairy factories. In 1943 also Van Heel in Kampen became part of the Lijempf group. In 1973, Lijempf was taken over by Royal Wessanen, and from that point on concentrated more and more on the export of infant formula under a.o. the Bebelac brand name. As the number of international contacts increased, the factory name was changed to Lyempf.

In 1995 the Lyempf packaging factory in Leeuwarden (where infant formula is mixed and packaged) becomes independent of Nutricia. This factory continues under the name Lypack. In 1996 the Hyproca Group buys the factory in Ommen: the first link in the entire production chain for infant and toddler nutrition that the group will control five years later. The Hyproca Group becomes the owner of Lypack in 1999, which means that the process for packaging infant formula comes under its own control.

In 2008, the Hyproca Group becomes the owner of the Kabrita and CBM brands, and, in addition to cow’s milk, also becomes active in goat’s milk. As a result, the Hyproca Group no longer produces for third parties only, but also carries its own brands. In 2011 the Hyproca Group start its partnership with Ausnutria. The company name of the Dutch organization (the Hyproca Group) changes to Ausnutria Hyproca and Ausnutria Hyproca becomes part of Ausnutria Dairy Corporation Ltd. located in Hong Kong. The same year the factory in Kampen is taken over. The former Lyempf factories (Kampen & Leeuwarden) are reunited.
Since 2017, two new factories in Heerenveen are operating. These factories have been build to the strictest requirements with regard to quality and hygiene. The newest technologies have been combined with our expertise and over 100 years of experience in dairy production and over 70 years of experience in the development and production of infant formula. This makes it one of the most advanced infant formula production facilities in the world.

Ausnutria and its worldwide business of goat milk infant formula Kabrita have been build on the foundation of the factories that have been producing infant formula and other dairy products for over a century. This helps Kabrita to develop and produce the best goat milk infant formula everyday.
