“Bringing health through food to as many people as possible”: this is the mission Danone has set itself. Day in, day out, this mission guides the research teams in their work.
This entails developing products whose nutritional profiles and benefits are adapted to the needs of consumers and to local public health issues. Bringing health through food also means striving to improve eating habits of individuals and promoting better nutrition, accessible to all through close collaboration with scientific and health authorities.
It should therefore not come as a surprise that research plays such a central role in our business: identifying relevant health benefits coupled with technological solutions as well as measuring the impact of our work.
Since 2006, our beliefs and commitments in terms of health and nutrition have been formalized in our charter. This charter acts as an operational guide, for all our subsidiaries, who carry out self-assessments on a yearly basis in order to measure their progress.
