In Ireland, Danone employs a total of almost 700 people, including at two supply points in Macroom and Wexford and offices in Dublin.

Danone aims to inspire healthier and more sustainable eating and drinking practices, in line with its ‘One Planet.

Danone commits to operating in an efficient, responsible and inclusive manner; it holds itself to the highest standards in doing business, as reflected by its ambition to become one of the first multinationals certified as B Corp.

What inspires us

Danone Specialised Nutrition is on a journey to become B Corp accredited. B Corps (B Corporations) are mission-driven businesses operating as a force for good. They do business in ways that are not only good for their shareholders, but good for their employees, customers, communities, suppliers and the environment. 

B Corp strengthens and complements Danone’s ‘One Planet One Health’ vision, highlighting our belief that the health of people and planet are interconnected. It is also an expression of our long-time commitment to sustainable business and to Danone’s dual project of economic success and social progress. 

Engaging with our local communities is embedded in Danone's DNA. At Danone Specialised Nutrition, we are delighted to partner with Laura Lynn and Epilepsy Ireland, amongst others, to bring this to life.
