Danone, Groupe in Packaged Food Company Profile

Company Profile

About This Report

Feb 2019

Danone ranked fourth among the world’s packaged food companies in 2018. The most important movement for the big dairy company was the WhiteWave acquisition in 2017, which allowed Danone to enter one of the fastest-growing categories globally, namely plant-based food. This has contributed to category expansion but also boosted its corporate reputation thanks to a more sustainable portfolio, clearly illustrating Danone’s key message: “Danone. One Planet. One Health.”
