Who we are

Our partners

We can achieve so much more when we're better connected.

We recognise the value of the connections we have with patient and professional organisations and work with them to help achieve better patient outcomes and improve the nutritional care that patients receive.

We are proud to work in partnership with patient, carer and professional organisations to help meet our ambition to make medical nutrition an integral part of healthcare.

Meet our partners

We work closely with a wide range of organisations. Here's the story behind just two of our partnerships.

Carers UK

Our work with Carers UK found that 60% of carers worry about the nutritional intake of the person they care for. Through our partnership we are committed to raising awareness of the importance of good nutrition – both for carers and for those they are looking after.

With the support of our in-house dietitians, we have delivered a series of social media days around nutrition and provide a range of free information leaflets and expert advice online.

We nurture partnerships that help make nutritional care better for everyone

We've been working closely with Matthew's Friends for 10 years

Matthew's Friends

Matthew's Friends is a UK registered charity that focuses on ketogenic diet therapy. The benefits of a ketogenic diet in helping to achieve seizure control in patients with drug resistant epilepsy are well established but awareness about the diet is low; and families who want to try often struggle to find support.

Thanks to the work of Matthew’s Friends there is increasing awareness around ketogenic diets and patients, families and healthcare professionals can access more information and resources than ever before. Nutricia is proud of its 10-year partnership with Matthew’s Friends, during this time we have:

  • Sponsored the first dedicated training course for HCPs working in the field of ketogenic diet therapies – Ketocollege
  • Collaborated with Matthew’s Friends to develop the first UK family day for patients
  • Helped create recipes and cookery resources to make the ketogenic diet easier for patients to follow.

The Daisy Garland

The Daisy Garland is a national, registered charity working exclusively for children with drug resistant epilepsy and their families. Their main project is to fund specialist Daisy Garland Ketogenic Dietitians (21 to date) in National Health Hospitals throughout the UK. Their passion for raising ketogenic awareness knows no bounds and their vital work has given thousands of children the opportunity to access, free of charge, the ketogenic dietary treatment.

Working in partnership with 15 NHS Trusts, The Daisy Garland offers a wide range of valuable ketogenic resources for families, including complimentary Ketogenic Welcome Boxes, ‘I Can Only Have Food From Home’ button badges and stickers, and The Really Useful Ketogenic Diets Books. Their on-line parent support group – ‘Daisy’s Keto Café’ – accessed via their Facebook page is a positive, interactive café for parents and carers of children on the ketogenic diet. It is a safe place to share keto hints, tips and recipes. The Daisy Garland is mindful of the complex needs of families whose children have epilepsy – they have first hand experience and are there to help. 

We nurture partnerships that help make nutritional care better for anyone
