In 2012, co-founders Dr. Kate Morrison, N.D. and Carolyn Ansley, two North American entrepreneurs with a passion for children’s health and empowering parents to make great nutrition choices for their kids, partnered with a market-leading dairy company in the Netherlands to bring the Kabrita brand to North America. Kabrita is a line of gentle non-GMO goat milk foods, specially designed to meet the nutritional needs of active toddlers. Our partnership with Hyproca Nutrition allows us to leverage their 70 years of infant nutrition expertise and bring our customers the best.
From the very beginning, we wanted KABRITA to be about more than just feeding little ones. We wanted to create a company that would help parents nourish their intuition by fostering learning and dialogue that would help parents make nutritional choices for their children with confidence and joy.
Transparency, openness and a desire to bridge the gap between the ideal of all-natural and the realities of life is at the heart of KABRITA North America. We start with ourselves, by creating a working environment that is conducive both to the hard work and passion needed to deliver the best products and information to our customers, and the reality of what it takes to be happy, healthy parents. We employ flexible working hours and support each other to make sure we get things done. We are committed to continuous learning and empower each other to be the best we can be. We also take time to enjoy natural, nourishing foods together when we’re in the office. We work hard, but we also make sure we have time to keep fit and spend time with our families at home.
We are crazy about quality, so our products are tested every step of the way. KABRITA Goat Milk Toddler Formula is produced in The Netherlands and is extensively tested for overall quality and food safety, in accordance to Dutch and European food safety regulations. KABRITA Goat Milk Yogurt and Fruit is produced in the U.S. and Canada, in accordance to U.S. and Canadian food safety regulations.
We choose our partners carefully. Everyone from the suppliers of our goat milk to the designers who create our beautiful website and packaging go through an extensive review process. They must meet all of our internal quality and service standards and the fit needs to be right. After all, in order to infuse our work with joy, and create products and content that is the best it can be, we need to choose suppliers who share our values and become part of the KABRITA family.
We are passionate about making the world a better place for our children by making good food – and by making choices that support the environment. All our KABRITA products are sourced with ingredients that have not been genetically modified – from our goat milk ingredients, to the pureed fruits in our yogurt and the vitamins and minerals in all of our products. Both our farms in The Netherlands and Missouri are seeking ‘Non-GMO Project’ verification. Our farms make animal welfare a big priority and our goats are treated with care and dignity.
When it comes to packaging, we try to minimize waste. Our formula cans are 100% recyclable and are made from 50% recycled materials. Our yogurt pouches can’t be recycled just yet, but they still have a smaller carbon footprint than traditional jars because they are much so lighter to transport.
We also endeavor to reduce our carbon footprint by using ground and batch shipping as much as possible.
