Better Choices

We innovate to create and promote healthier alternatives

We believe that everyone in the food and drink industry has a role to play in supporting health. We need to do more, faster – and at Danone UK & Ireland we are taking action to offer healthy products and inspire healthier and more sustainable eating and drinking habits.


We want to help people understand what a healthy diet is and the nutritional value of different foods so they can make better choices.

  • Our Dairy and Plant-based products offer a range of yogurts and plant-based dairy alternatives.
  • Our Waters brands actively promote the consumption of water as the healthiest way to stay hydrated, with our low sugar beverages products offering a healthier alternative to regular sugared drinks.
  • Our Specialised Nutrition products offer complementary foods with no added sugar or salt. We also support parents and babies on their weaning journey by developing products that offer appropriate texture progression.


Man eating yogurt

As more consumers adopt a flexitarian diet, dairy plays an important role in helping people achieve lifelong health. We hosted a workshop on flexitarianism with leading Irish dietitians and nutritionists in 2019. It was a satellite event to the FENS nutrition conference held in Dublin. We wanted to increase awareness about flexitarianism and enable informed discussion about the role of dairy as part of a flexitarian diet. We see this initiative as helping us to pave the way for future yogurt product launches.
