Danone, one of the world’s leading suppliers of dairy products, recently announced that it intends to triple its sales of plant based products by 2025. Last month, the CEO of Danone SA, predicted that the next decade will see consumers consistently moving away from animal proteins and towards plant based products.
Danone subsidiaries include Alpro, Provamel, and recently acquired Whitewave, making them one of the foremost players in plant-based production. We spoke to Gaetan van de Populiere, Brand Equity Director.
Being part of Danone gives Alpro and Provamel the opportunity to increase the visibility of plant-based products and make them accessible to more people than before.
Health and sustainability have always been strong values shared within Danone, and both Alpro and Provamel remain true to who & what they are: 100% plant-based, GMO-free, healthy and full of taste. We’ll continue to source our ingredients & make our products according to our philosophy of sustainability and quality.
Aligned with its long-standing commitment to combined economic success and social progress, Danone publicly communicated its ambition to become a Certified B Corp globally.
Alpro is one of nine Danone subsidiaries certified B Corp to date. By joining the B Corp movement, Alpro re-affirms its commitment to use our business as a force for good and to making a positive difference in the world.
Both Alpro & Provamel have a sizeable portfolio of categories & plant-based ingredients, ranging from Drinks (Plain & Flavoured), to plant-based alternatives to yoghurt & cream and desserts. Alpro has recently added plant-based Iced coffees and plant-based Ice Cream to the portfolio. Looking forward, we’ll continue to develop our offer further.
