Breastmilk: the optimal foundation for lifelong health
Over 90% of Australian babies initiate breastfeeding *. However not all sick or premature babies in hospital can be breastfed from birth, and that's where Human Milk Banks play an important role.

I was introduced to the world of pasteurisation approximately 15 months ago, where I had the good fortune to meet Becky Thompson from Nascor. Becky’s knowledge base and expertise on the Sterifeed Pasteuriser and Safety Cap Sealer is amazing. She has educated, trained and guided our team, as well as continued to provide expert advice to help us deliver a safe and high quality outcome.

We have had the Sterifeed S90Eco pasteuriser for 5 years. Having the only pasteuriser in New Zealand has been a challenge at times and although it has “played up” from time to time the service and advice on how to fix the pasteuriser has been excellent. Becky is a most thorough and dependable representative. The after purchase support service has been great. The Sterifeed engineers and managers in the UK have been available, despite the time difference, with advice.
