Global Overview

One Planet. One Health

At Danone, we believe that food is healthy and that human health is inseparable from that of our planet and the living conditions of communities. This forms a whole. It is this idea that we wish to express through our new signature “One Planet. One Health” , a call to join the food revolution and to realize the power of each of our consumer choices on our health and society.


“At Danone, we believe that each time we eat and drink, we can vote for the world we want. That’s the heart of the Alimentation Revolution, a movement which calls for the adoption of healthier and more sustainable ways of designing, producing and marketing food.”

Emmanuel Faber (CEO, Danone)

Delivering health through food to as many people as possible: that is the mission which guides the Danone teams on an everyday basis. We offer nutritious and balanced food products that taste good and deliver a health benefit to a large number of consumers. Today Danone operates worldwide through four businesses that enjoy leadership positions in most markets. 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.

Fresh Dairy – World No 1

Danone’s Fresh Dairy Products division consists of production and distribution of yoghurts, fermented dairy products and other specialities of fresh dairy products. Yoghurt contains nutrients that are essential throughout life and required on a daily basis. We believe that a typical, regular serving of yoghurt supports gut health through better lactose digestion and helps the development and maintenance of healthy bones. In many ways, yoghurt is a nutritionally superior choice compared to many other food options.

Waters – World No 2

Danone Water’s mission is to “inspire people towards healthier hydration”. Our mission is built on our conviction that what you drink during the day makes a difference to your health and that water is the healthiest beverage. Up to 40% of the people in the countries where we operate drink less than the recommended daily intake. Through our iconic water- and water-based brands we are committed to help people improve their hydration habits.

Early Life Nutrition – World No 2

We Make every day count for you and your baby

Central to our mission is the core belief that what you do and eat in First 1000 days makes the difference for the rest of your life. 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. Our product portfolio is designed to deliver optimal nutrition to meet the specific needs during every developmental stage of the first 1000 days, and beyond. Together with our partners, we have always advocated the importance of nutrition for infants and young children, including breastfeeding.

Medical Nutrition – No 1 in Europe

Our Medical Nutrition division is driven by a powerful purpose: to pioneer nutritional discoveries that help people live longer, healthier lives. Nutricia works closely with the scientific community to develop evidence-based Foods for Special Medical Purposes that deliver positive and proven differences to people of all ages.
