    About the company

    Danone is a Global Alimentation Company, promoting good health as a state of general well−being for both mind and body. Its mission is to bring health through food to as many people as possible. Danone 2020 is an initiative designed to transform the group, addressing the major trends and social challenges facing society − including the central issue of alimentation. How can the group feed 9 billion people in 2050? What resources, products and services will be needed? How to address health issues? The scope of these questions is staggering, and Danone is convinced it has an important role to play.

    Food and Water Cycles (F&WC) is one of the three key ambitions within Danone 2020. F&WC purpose is to sustainably manage our strategic resources into practice. Milk, Water and Plastic are at the heart of our business, we need to protect and enhance these resources in collaboration with our local communities. We will do this through co−building the circular economy around our essential resources, leveraging alliances and technologies and nourishing meaningful brands for our consumers. The cycle starts with the management of water resources, agricultural raw materials, and packaging. The cycle also includes the collection of used products, recycling of waste and the preservation of our water cycle. Managing cycles effectively and responsibly involves implementing end−to−end production processes that produce the least amount of waste possible − a concept also referred to as ‘the circular economy’.

    Strategic Resource Cycles (SRC) is the newly created cross−division organization that consists of the sourcing capabilities and dedicated transversal teams that will deliver the Food & Water Cycle ambitions, securing our license to operate and strengthening our competitive advantage. This new organization includes three cycles: Milk, Plastics and Waters, and two streams to manage our Strategic resources across business units and across the full cycle: Services and Goods and One Direct Sourcing. Joining this team places you at the heart of the Danone 2020 transformation, where you can make a personal impact on the future.
