In 2017, Danone unveiled a refreshed logo and its very first company signature: One Planet. One Health. These words reflect our vision that the health of people and the health of the planet are interconnected. It is a call to action for all consumers and everyone who has a stake in food to join the food revolution: a movement aimed at nurturing the adoption of healthier, more sustainable eating and drinking habits.
“ CONSUMERS ARE CRAVING CHANGE. THEY EXPECT LARGE ORGANIZATIONS LIKE DANONE TO BRING OUR SCALE OF IMPACT TO CHANGE THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER."
Our commitment to bringing health through food is as old as the company we keep. Both Danone since 1919 and FanMilk since 1959 have been committed to making high quality nutritious products that are offered to the population at large, therefore being accessible for every single person. Fuelled by our beliefs we execute the One Planet, One Health vision with a clear mission for West Africa:
Everyday we touch and enrich the lives of millions of West Africans in a positive way by making tasty nutritious food available in a sustainable way..

We have a long-term commitment to create and share sustainable value for all stakeholders, in line with our dual economic and social agenda. We stand for sustainably sourced ingredients; for naturality and transparency; and for simple recipes and clean labels. Supported by strong innovation capabilities, we believe these are key fundamentals to create superior food experiences for people, as this will remain the first driver of healthier and more sustainable choices.
We are creating a healthy and sustainable ecosystem through the development of purposeful brands or manifesto brands to impact the health of people locally as well as the planet as a whole. We also strive to foster positive solutions for the planet by sourcing sustainably for all our ingredients and packaging
It is our goal to grow in an inclusive way, empowering our people and working with partners to create and share sustainable value.
We achieve this goal by first of all developing the spirit of ownership among all Danoners.
Building on our unique social innovation heritage, we will allow each of our employees to co-own our agenda and our Goals, both at global and local level. This will lead us into a new, healthy future for our company, our employees and for our communities
