Overview

Danone is a French food products company that markets a broad range of products, including dairy products such as yogurt and cheese. The company began operating in the Polish market in 1990. Initially, it acted exclusively as an importer of food products, but in 1992, the first Danone production plant in Poland was established in Warsaw. Two years later, in response to growing market demand, production started in Bieruñ in the province of Silesia.
