SERVE THE FOOD REVOLUTION WITH PARTNERS

SERVE THE FOOD REVOLUTION WITH PARTNERS

A food revolution is happening, and we choose to serve it. However, we cannot do it alone: to change the way food is grown, produced, marketed, distributed, sold and consumed, we need to co-create solutions with others, leveraging their expertise. To do so, we are building on decades of partnership experience to work hand in hand with Danone employees, farmers, suppliers, retailers, consumers and partners as well as civil society, governments and public health professionals. Altogether, we want to be remembered as a driving force of the food generation.

"Consumption habits are changing and are disrupting our production and distribution patterns. Consumers have never been so concerned about what they eat. Carrefour and Danone carry out a global and shared ambition to enable our consumers to make healthier and more sustainable choices by creating new practices. We are convinced that our mission is to make this transformation occur. Together, we will succeed. Several innovative actions have already been implemented in stores with Danone in Spain, France or Poland, allowing children access to a healthier diet or the development of organic product ranges."

Alexandre Bompard – Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Carrefour group
