Lactarium – human milk bank

A fundamental service for newborns and premature infants, the Lactarium provides key support to all neonatal units. Human breast milk remains the most nutritious and complete food for newborns, which is why Serenissima Ristorazione has created the first human milk bank – BLUD (Servizio Banca del Latte Umano Donato) – a public/private centre at Azienda Ospedaliera di Padova.
The centre is responsible for selecting, collecting, checking, treating, preserving and distributing human breast milk, which is donated and then processed, preserved, pasteurised and packaged as fresh or frozen, depending on the medical prescription. The Group’s service has earned ISO 9001:15, UNI 10854:99 and ISO 22000:05 certifications.
