Looking after our health : It’s the biggest responsibility each of us has.

More than ever before

nutrition will be an essential tool for improving health.

  • Offering everyone high quality, natural food that helps to build health through all of life’s stages.
  • Cultivating a taste or things that are good for you.
  • Feeding young children, and vulnerable people as well as those in good health.
  • Adapting our products to all cultures.
  • Exploring what scientific research can bring to our daily diet.

THIS IS THE ADVENTURE IN WHICH
DANONE HAS CHOSEN TO PARTICIPATE.

Our mission

BRINGING HEALTH THROUGH FOOD TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE

Historically, the first Danone yogurts were sold in pharmacies.

It was in 1896 that the Van der Hagen brothers opened their plant to produce "kindermelk", infant formula dedicated to children. The name Nutricia was adopted in 1901.

Similarly, the virtues of Evian water were discovered in 1789.

IT IS OUR CONVICTION AT DANONE THAT FOOD AND NUTRITION ARE CRUCIAL FOR BUILDING AND SUSTAINING HEALTH AND WELL-BEING FOR ALL, FROM BIRTH THROUGH TO OLD AGE.

Franck Riboud

Danone is a company made up of men and women, of individuals
with an entrepreneurial spirit.

Decentralisation, pragmatism, best practice sharing: agility is one of Danone’s key features.

As is the social responsibility that is part of our DNA:

This was the dawn of
Danone’s dual economic
and social project.

Antoine riboud 1972

On a day-to-day basis, this mission:

  • draws on our
    business culture
  • is fed by
    3 strategic themes
  • is made tangible
    through 3 social
    innovation platforms

IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO ACCEPT THAT GROWTH MEANS LEAVING SO MANY BY THE WAYSIDE. OLD PEOPLE, THE MALADJUSTED, THE SICK AND, ABOVE ALL, THE WORKERS, MANY OF WHOM DO NOT DRAW ENOUGH BENEFIT FROM THE FRUITS OF GROWTH (...) THIS IS A QUESTION OF COLLECTIVE CONSCIENCE.

Antoine Riboud

3 axes

Our mission is fed by 3 strategic themes:

at Danone, we believe the company is heading
in the right direction when it succeeds in reconciling
economic, social, health and environmental aspects.

graphisme 3 axes

... because everything is intertwined!

There cannot be healthy products without a healthy ecosystem,
or healthy eating without economic and social
development for populations...

Danone owes it to itself to take things a step further, aim higher, work in new directions. We want to do more than meet requirements, we want to take the initiative for progress.

Franck Riboud

Hence the three social innovation platforms that underpin our mission:

Danone.communities,
the Danone Ecosystem Fund and the Livelihoods Fund.

... this is why
the danone mission mobilises
tens of thousands of
people throughout the world:

Danone employees, of course,
but also
citizens, NGOs,
local authorities, producers,
distributors...
