By acquiring WhiteWave, Danone is accelerating an Alimentation Revolution and contributing to the health of people, communities and the planet. The merger is the result of two growing and purpose-driven food companies strongly committed to food and health. Bringing the two companies together provides the opportunity to make an ever greater difference in the world and bring people a wider choice of healthy and great tasting foods. This new business helps accelerate our journey towards achieving strong sustainable profitable growth through larger scale thanks to our market leadership, more innovation capabilities and efficiency. The more diverse portfolio of our new business helps satisfy consumers’ desires for a wider choice of great-tasting products by incorporating both dairy and/or plant-based choices. Danone believes and supports WhiteWave/Alpro in our common mission of wanting to change the way the world eats for the better to enhance people’s wellbeing and preserving the planet.
