100 years of pioneering healthy innovation

100 years of pioneering healthy innovation

100 years ago, Isaac Carasso created a simple food with a simple aim to improve health: mixing ferments and fresh milk, he made a yogurt that he affectionately named ‘Danone’ after his son, Daniel. Over the years, we have continued to innovate to anticipate and meet people’s needs as their lifestyles and tastes evolved.

100 years ago, Isaac Carasso created a simple food with a simple aim to improve health: mixing ferments and fresh milk, he made a yogurt that he affectionately named ‘Danone’ after his son, Daniel. Over the years, we have continued to innovate to anticipate and meet people’s needs as their lifestyles and tastes evolved.

What has never changed, is our commitment to bringing health through food to as many people as possible. From this simple mission, articulated by Franck Riboud, we have built a unique healthfocused portfolio. Through a century of revolutionary change, our business has grown from yogurts sold in the pharmacies of Barcelona to a range of foods and beverages, enjoyed by millions of people around the world, which offer superior food experiences while inspiring healthier and more sustainable eating and drinking habits.

 

Through our ‘One Planet. One Health’ vision, not only do we live up to the values behind the very first Danone yogurt—quality products made with carefully selected ingredients in a way that nourishes people’s health—but we also take care of the health of the planet. Building on our legacy dual project of business success and social progress, we are committed to creating long-term value for our shareholders as for everyone in our food system.
