MILKIFY'S MISSON

The aim of the Milkify service is to overcome barriers to storage, transportation, and inconvenience of expressed breast milk, in order to support breastfeeding continuation.

Longer storage. More convenience. Better infant nutrition.

THE MILKIFY SERVICE

Milkify's proprietary freeze-drying process for breast milk provides the following benefits:

  • Stores for 3 years with no refrigeration

  • Prevents nutrient degradation

  • Preserves immune factors and probiotics

  • Completely chemical and additive-free process

MILKFY FOUNDERS

Milkify was founded by Dr. Berkley Luck, an expert in the field of microbiome science. Dr. Luck studied the infant gut microbiome, and used freeze-drying technology during her graduate research as a way to preserve the probiotic bacteria she was studying. Seeing the opportunity offered by freeze-drying technology, Milkify started with the goal of preserving the probiotics in breast milk for better infant nutrition.  Dr. Luck spent the better part of a year fine-tuning and perfecting a safe and effective freeze-drying process specific to human breast milk - the result being Milkify’s proprietary process which allows the storage of breast milk powder for 3 years with no refrigeration. Then, together with her Co-Founder and husband, Pedro Silva, set out to create a service based around the mission of removing barriers to breastfeeding.
