MELVILLE, N.Y. — Hain Celestial has made plans to introduce a line of organic infant formula through its Earth’s Best Brand, which already manufactures organic food for infants and children.
The formula, which is certified U.S.D.A. organic, is patterned after breast milk and contains no bioengineered ingredients, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
The rollout of the organic formula has been in the works for some time, said Irwin D. Simon, president and chief executive officer of Hain Celestial. With the addition of the infant formula, the brand will have a complete line-up of organic foods to transition with children from infancy to childhood, Mr. Simon said.
