MILK WITH A MISSION
Many babies who desperately need donor breast milk can’t get it.
We set out to change that.
In the United States, only 10% of preemies have access to life-saving human milk-based nutrition.
Human milk-based nutrition is ideal for at-risk infants. Even so, hospitals struggle to obtain enough donor milk to feed NICU patients. Reasons for this are often transportation and storage, which can become costly due to freezing requirements.
The solution is to reduce costs and increase human milk access to every baby, which is the Medolac founding mission. Medolac human milk products utilize proven food-processing methods to produce the only sterile human milk-based nutrition that is shelf-stable at room temperature.
Donor human milk nutrition to meet today's healthcare needs
Medolac donor breast milk products are standardized to meet specific nutritional targets. Unlike other donor milk products, Benefit donor milk is stored at room temperature, commercially-sterile and homogenized. Hospitals across the United States choose Benefit donor milk for proven cost savings, and improved safety and quality.
Driven by what's best for babies
Medolac Laboratories is the only milk bank legally classified as a Public Benefit Company. This means that our decisions are driven by what’s best for babies, not solely the bottom line. We can make decisions that other human milk companies, beholden to investors or stockholders, can’t.
Dedicated to saving lives around the world
Our mission is to make human milk the standard of care for premature and sick infants by increasing access to donor milk. In fact, we have an ambitious goal: to provide donor breast milk to the 15 million babies born around the world each year. Since the moment we started Medolac, we’ve been committed to challenging the status quo. We knew there was a better way and we weren’t going to stop until we found one.
