Groupe Danone

Danone is a French food-products company which has recently undertaken transformational M&A and altered its product portfolio as a result. Essential Dairy and Plant-Based (EDP) products accounted for 53% of its FY17 total revenues following the consolidation of WWF from 12 April 2017. Danone's other business lines are Specialized Nutrition (26%) and Waters (20%). In terms of geographic breakdown, 53% of the company's FY17 revenue was generated in Europe & Noram (US and Canada), with 'Rest of the World' accounting for the balance. Management's strategy is to concentrate on expansion in high-growth regions such as Mexico, Indonesia, China, Russia, the USA and Brazil. The group's global brands include Actimel and Activia in Dairy and Evian and Volvic in Waters. WWF's brands include dairy-products Horizon & Organic, and plant-based milk substitutes Silk and So-Delicious. (12 Sep 2018)
