Overall B Impact Scoreinfo_outline


The B Impact Scores are being compared against all businesses that have completed the B Impact Assessment

Danone Canada is one of the country’s largest dairy and plant-based food and beverage companies, with the mission to bring health through food to as many people as possible.

In April 2017, Danone expanded its health, sustainability and social impacts by bringing its North American dairy business together with WhiteWave Foods, a leader in plant-based and organic food, beverages and coffee creamers. Danone Canada set a commitment to become a Certified B Corporation by 2020, an ambition it met nearly two years ahead of schedule thanks to the passion and perseverance of a cross-functional team of 40 dedicated employees. The company’s B Corp certification both underscores its longstanding responsible business practices and demonstrates its meaningful commitment to continuous improvement.

Danone Canada aspires to nourish lives and inspire a healthier world through food. Its portfolio of beloved, trusted and pioneering brands in fresh dairy, plant-based and coffee creamers and beverages sustain and delight people at every age and during any moment of the day. From the local corner shop, to cafeterias, to major grocery chains, you will likely find one or more of our delicious products. Our brands in Canada include Activia®*, Oikos®*, DanActive®*, Danone Creamy®*, Danino®*, Danette® and YoCrunch®. The company has head offices in Boucherville, Quebec and Mississauga, Ontario. Its main Canadian production facility is located in Boucherville, Quebec.

* These subsidiaries and/ or brands have been reviewed and independently meet the performance requirement for certification and therefore are allowed to use the Certified B Corp logo and other associated Intellectual Property.”
