Danone, Groupe in Packaged Food

Company Profile

About This Report

Feb 2017

Danone benefits from strong global brands, spearheaded by Activia, which saw a relaunch across its most important markets in 2016. In baby food, it ranks second globally, but faces lower growth prospects as a result of more challenging conditions in China. Despite a wide global reach, Danone remains highly dependent on developed markets for its fresh dairy division. Danone has stated that it will focus on improving the profitability of its products, rather than accelerating growth.
