Due to rising consumer demands for healthier hydration options, our Waters business delivered a solid profitable growth driven by both plain water and aquadrinks. It enjoyed an accelerated dynamic in China the second half of the year, on the back of gradual growth rebound on the market and successful renovation and innovation plans around the Mizone aquadrink brand. Aquadrinks now represent 1/3 of the division’s sales, driven by successful innovations such as evian's new line of tea-based beverages launched with French brand Kusmi Tea and Bonafont Kids' relaunch in Mexico with no-added sugar and zero artificial flavors.
Danone is constantly working on developing healthy hydration habits from an early age. Through awareness campaigns reaching millions of people, Danone puts its commitment to help spread the word about healthy hydration in action.
We also promote sustainable water practices throughout our operations and strive to protect and restore our natural water ecosystems in cooperation with local communities and stakeholders.
