Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods has struck a deal with Martek Biosciences that will see the Russian food group's infant formula fortified with Martek's life'sDHA & life'sARA fatty acids.

Martek said that the supply arrangement with Wimm-Bill-Dann was the first of its kind with a Russian food company.

"Martek is pleased to be working with Wimm-Bill-Dann, Martek's first domestic Russian infant formula partner," said Ethan Leonard, vice president of pediatric nutrition for Martek.

"Agreements like this one further demonstrate that companies across the globe recognise the importance of adding Martek's DHA and ARA for infant health and development."
