James Pearson, General Manager
“The success of any organisation depends on its ability to connect with its consumers. At Danone we see that this connection needs to happen at a total community level. Food and nutrition are fundamental to how society functions. Therefore we need to listen and communicate with a broad spectrum of stakeholders, from consumers, patients, families and carers through to retailers, healthcare professionals, suppliers and policy makers. We are proud of how we have been able to support the creation of influential coalitions such The Infant and Toddler Forum and the Malnutrition Taskforce to name but two.”

The medical foods and supplements we make at our Liverpool factory are a great example of how we bring our passion for providing the ‘best care’ to life. The team here makes some of the most specialised nutrition products in the world; they are literally life-savers for the people that need them. And our consumers must be able to rely on us for the best in terms of product quality and efficacy. It’s absolutely key to everything we do and it's something that motivates us every day."
