At Danone, we aim to drive change not only from our portfolio of products, which are aimed at producing well-being in people, we want this to also be reflected in our world. Danone Mexico starts its operations in 1973 focused on providing health through food and hydration. Behind this company dedicated to producing healthy food of the best quality there is much more; It is a company that is formed by people who have a real concern to generate innovative products that become preferred by consumers, in addition to being committed to their employees, communities and the environment. At Danone, we achieve certification of our entire Essential Dairy & Plant-Based portfolio, which includes our dairy products such as Silk, Activia, Danonino, BeneG, Danup, Danette, Dany, Vitalínea, Danmix and Oikos. The pursuit of a certification as a B Corp implies joining the search for an economy with the capacity to create integral values in favor of people and planet Earth. This aligns with the global vision we have at Danone: "One Planet, One Health", where these aspects coexist in balance and governs us to provide well-being at all levels.
