Since its beginning, Alpro has been a pioneer of plant-based food solutions, building on the promise to put sustainability at the heart of all it does for almost 40 years, taking into account the interest of all our stakeholders, not just shareholders. Alpro’s vision is of a world where more of what we eat comes directly from plants. Why? Because a plant-based lifestyle tastes good in every sense – it’s more sustainable for the planet, and eating more food from plants is good for our health. By bringing innovative and tasty plant-based food and drink products to millions of consumers, Alpro is growing its business while tackling the health challenges of both people and the planet, thus creating both economic and social value. For Alpro, every time we eat and drink, we vote for the world we want to live in. This vision aligns very well with the vision of our parent company Danone, summarized in Danone, One Planet. One Health.
