To accelerate this food revolution and create sustainable, profitable value for all its stakeholders, Danone has defined nine 2030 Goals, and paved the way as the first listed company to adopt the “Entreprise à Mission” status in France.

Alpro is the pioneer of plant-based eating and drinking, that has created delicious plant-based alternatives to milk, yogurt, cream, custard, desserts and ice cream for 40 years, made from either non-GM soya beans, coconuts, almonds, hazelnuts, rice or oats. Since 2018, Alpro is B Corp certified because of its efforts to combine social and environmental goals with financial success, and driving a planetary diet is part of its B Corp spirit.
