In 2017, Danone unveiled its very first company signature: One Planet. One Health. These words reflect our vision that the health of people and the health of the planet are interconnected. It is a call to action for all consumers and everyone who has a stake in food to join the food revolution: a movement aimed at nurturing the adoption of healthier, more sustainable eating and drinking habits.

To support Danone in this very important vision, Cycles & Procurement (C&P) plays a key role by leveraging sustainability, growth and efficiency in connecting the external partners to Danone’s businesses. To maximize its value contribution to Danone’s businesses in this fast changing world, C&P is currently transforming.

By building on our current strengths and capturing new opportunities, we aim for a new operating model which is driven by data and powered by people. With this transformation we have an opportunity to deliver more value, find new value pockets and become more effective and efficient. As we aim to serve excellence to our stakeholders, the project name ‘Michelin’ was chosen for our transformation. The transformation is focused on three key pillars:

  • Building specialized procurement capabilities
  • Working with data & technology
  • Enable efficient processes & ways of working

The target is to transform our organization, tools & technology and new ways of working worldwide, meaning about 150 Danone legal entities and 25,000 users will be embarked in the change.


You can be on the forefront of this transformation!
