In 1972 in Marseille, Antoine Riboud explained his vision of the company’s role by stating that economic and social goals are interdependent. This visionary thinking provided the cornerstone for Danone’s dual economic and social project. To this day, our teams around the world imagine operating models that create economic, social and environmental value.
Ever since the merger of BSN and Gervais Danone in 1973, this belief in a different style of company has led the company to develop its very own identity. This extends as far as its management style, which combines both business and strong ethical values. These values guide the way we behave every day, the way we work and progress in our business, the way we connect with our communities, and the way we develop people.
