Social Innovation Funds

In some ways Danone is different, and we want to remain different as we grow.

We are a large and diverse global company today, with strong heritage that continues to underpin our culture and strategy.

This heritage is truly part of our business. In 1972 our then CEO Antoine Riboud announced our ‘dual project’ to balance business needs with the needs of society. That dual project was enhanced in 2006 by Frank Riboud who launched our lasting mission to bring health through food to as many people as possible. In 2018 we launched our new signature "Danone, One Planet. One Health" will guide our actions for the coming years.

The most important balance is between our confidence that we can contribute to building a healthier future and our acceptance that we don’t have all the answers.  There are many issues we are still working on, and need the wisdom of our partners to help solve.

With the Social Innovation Funds, we invest in new business models for a healthier future.
