Now Even Babies Can Have Their Own “Espresso” Machine

I remember the first time I came across this shiny espresso machine that could freshly brew my own espresso at my very own home at any time of my day. It was fabulous and more importantly, effortless! Now even babies can have their own “espresso” machine the same way you brew your cup of morning joy out of your Nespresso (aided by George Cloney).

Nestlé introduced its premium BabyNes system, which prepare and deliver a hygienic, safe, easy and quick bottle for babies. The single-serve baby milk formula portions are sealed in capsules integrated with a microbiological filter that eliminates bacteria from the water. The bottle preparation takes place within the closed capsule which means it doesn’t have any contact with the machine or the user before going into the bottle.

The world’s first comprehensive state-of-the-art nutrition system for infants and toddlers, BabyNes, uses a patented technology to prepare the bottle with precisely the right dosage and temperature, at the push of a button, in less than one minute. The new baby formula system is an attempt to catch on the hotly competitive infant formula market. At the top ranking China appears as the biggest and fastest-growing formula market in the world with sales are rising more than 20 percent annually, compared with less than 4 percent in the U.S.

Nestlé’s infant formula, Good Start, accounts for 10% of the US market, ranked as top three brands, together with Mead Johnson Nutrition Co’s Enfamil (40% of the market), and Abbott Laboratories’ Similac (40%). The industry is rapidly consolidating and manufacturers are expanding their share of developing world markets as seen by Nestlé’s recent acquisition of Pfizer’s infant-nutrition business.

The high-tech BabyNes machine can be purchased for $287 and works with a range of six single-serving formula pods (purchased separately in packs of 26 for $56-$64), tailored for infants and young children up to the age of three years. Taking into consideration the baby’s evolving nutritional needs Nestlé customized four formulas to infants in their first year, and one formula for each of the following two years. The baby formula also is a perfect combination to when solid food is introduced to the infant’s diet.

Battling against organizations such as Baby Milk Action who raises campaigns against breastmilk substitutes, Nestlé said it supported WHO recommendations on breastfeeding for the six-month period and “continued breastfeeding thereafter for as long as possible”, according to The Guardian.

First Camel Milk Products Shipped to Europe

The dairy product business is a highly competitive industry in Europe with players such as Danone Group, Unilever and Nestlé owning the biggest market shares. A United Arab Emirates based company is differentiating itself from the biggest players by shipping camel milk to Europe.

The Emirates Industry for Camel Milk and Products is now bringing its camel milk products to European consumers. It is the first company that the European Commission has granted the license to ship camel milk products to Europe. The first products under the ‘Camelicious‘ brand were shipped in 2013 and they consisted of camel milk powder, fresh camel milk and camel whey powder.

Camel milk is a really low fat type of milk and has more calcium than any other milk. Also its Vitamin C content is 3-5 times higher than cow’s milk. There are no known allergies for camel milk and also people suffering from lactose intolerance are able to digest it.

Shipping Camel Milk is also a new application for cold chain logistics. The cold chain involves the transportation of temperature sensitive products along a supply chain through thermal and refrigerated packaging methods and the logistical planning to protect the integrity of these shipments. There are several means in which cold chain products can be transported, including refrigerated trucks, refrigerated cargo ships as well as by air cargo.
