A draft amendment to allow goats’ milk protein to be used in infant formula and to lower the minimum protein levels permitted in follow-on formula. This amendment will implement changes to EU Directive 2006/141/EC, which we expect to be published in the summer, after scrutiny by the European Parliament.
