4 health centered businesses

Food plays a fundamental role in development and well- being for everyone, at every age. At Danone, we’re committed to using our product categories to make people healthier in every way and at every stage of life, from promoting a balanced diet to delivering specific, targeted health benefits.

BUILD, MAINTAIN AND PROTECT

Using food to help the greatest number build, maintain and protect their health capital is our ultimate purpose. We have to focus on first, products that unite taste appeal, high quality and safety. Second, products and services that offer healthy choices with the highest possible nutrient density. And finally, solutions that are useful for a wide range of communities because they meet local needs and reinforce the social and cultural fabric.

It is our conviction at Danone that food and nutrition are crucial for building and sustaining health and well-being for all, from birth to old age. Franck Riboud, Chairman

For thousands of years, health and food have influenced each other. As our societies, our economy and our lifestyles have evolved, so have our eating habits - with some surprising results. In the United-States, one child in four drinks no water, only sweetened beverages*.
One million British seniors over the age of 65 are malnourished. In Russia, three-quarters of infants and toddlers from six months to three years old don't get enough iron. And in Senegal, one-fifth of children ages five to twelve are seriously iodine-deficient. Children and adults, men and women, seniors of any age - all are at risk of poor diet.

Advances in science confirm this every day. We know that nutrition is essential to:

  • build and maintain optimum health capital throughout life for successful aging
  • prevent some illnesses
  • make certain therapies more effective

FRESH DAIRY PRODUCTS WATERS EARLY LIFE NUTRITION MEDICAL NUTRITION

BRING THE HEALTH OF YOGURT TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE

For almost 100 years, Danone, has sought to bring fermented dairy products to as many people as possible around the world. This ambition is rooted in the firm belief that fermented dairy products like yogurt contribute to a healthy diet by providing essential nutrients and the goodness of fermented foods as well as the enjoyment of pleasurable taste and textures. 

At Danone, our purpose is to favour healthier eating practices, and we believe this can only be achieved by considering food in the broader sense: a cultural, social, emotional and physiological experience, where both nutrition and enjoyment play a key role to sustaining health.

Dietary staples for more than 5,000 years and a part of food cultures across the world, yogurt and fermented dairy products are increasingly popular with consumers and associated with healthy diets and lifestyles. And yogurt has all the attributes needed to continue making a positive contribution to healthier eating for generations to come.

STAND BY MUMS TO NURTURE NEW LIVES

We believe that by helping mums and babies get the right nutrition during the first 1000 days - from the start of pregnancy until her baby is two years old - we can and will positively influence their short- and long-term health outcomes. Together with our partners, we have always advocated the importance of nutrition for infants and young children, including breastfeeding. We are now broadening our horizons by expanding our support for each developmental stage during the first 1000 days. Alongside nutritional support through our education and services, we are introducing nutritious products for pregnant and breastfeeding women in an increasing number of global markets.

This mission is our driving force - it motivates us all and influences every decision that we make. It isn't just what we say that's important to us, but why and how we make it happen.
