A global leader with a health-focused portfolio in food & beverages
Danone is one of the world’s leading food and beverage companies, with a 100-year heritage and deep expertise in health and nutrition.
Historically, our company has always been one that is in motion and that has successfully transformed itself while remaining faithful to its vision and mission – to bring health through food to as many people as possible – reflecting its long-standing advocacy of healthier lifestyles and responsible business stewardship.
We have built over time a unique portfolio focused on fast-growing, health-focused categories, including essential dairy and plant-based products, waters, early life nutrition and advanced medical nutrition, to align with global consumer trends towards healthier nutrition and sustainably produced food, allowing us to be a key player in the ongoing food revolution. We have a unique portfolio of strong international and local brands across our four businesses that strongly connect with consumer trends and demands.
Our ambition is to lead the way to create and share sustainable value for our shareholders and all our stakeholders; and we are well-positioned to deliver strong, profitable and sustainable growth over the long term. In line with our 2020 agenda, the priorities we are setting for ourselves are accelerating growth, maximizing efficiency and pursuing disciplined capital allocation.
Our confidence is driven by our proven ability to serve meaningfully our consumers’ needs and desires with high-quality products and brands in attractive categories in a balanced array of geographies; our sharp focus on operational discipline and execution; our unwavering commitment to sustainable business practices and social progress; and the incredible energy of more than 100,000 fully committed Danoners, working every day to bring our unique vision to life.
Together, these elements are providing the solid foundation from which Danone will seize tomorrow’s opportunities and generate superior financial performance.
