Business Strategy and Outlook

| Ioannis Pontikis |

After years of suboptimal capital allocation decisions and execution, which have resulted in poor shareholder returns, Danone is in need of a new strategic plan.

Business Description

Following the acquisition of WhiteWave, Danone restructured the firm into three broad segments: essential dairy and plant-based products, which represents just over half of group revenue; specialised nutrition; and bottled water. The firm's portfolio includes well-known brands such as Danone/Dannon dairy products, Nutrilon and Cow & Gate infant nutrition, and Evian and Volvic bottled water. Danone derives about 60% of its annual sales outside Western Europe, up from about just one third in 2001.
