Going beyond food: through education programmes, Danone promotes healthier drinking and eating habits and healthier lifestyles.
Nutrition can only be truly effective as part of a broader healthy lifestyle. So to fulfil our vision of a healthy future we develop education and events that encourage healthier diets and exercise. This starts with Danone’s employees; 43 of the 44 subsidiaries we monitor give our employees access to a ‘health at work’ programme.
We are also promoting healthier lifestyles outside of the company, supporting education programmes in conjunction with our partners to bring health benefits to consumers, parents, patients, or caregivers. In 2014, the 44 subsidiaries in our scope have ran 199 consumers programs, reaching 490 million people and this is set to continue.
