Danone, a French leader in dairy and plant-based products, has been roped in as an Official Partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024.
The partnership will see Danone supply the participants and officials at the venues and events with its balanced, sustainable, locally-produced dairy and plant-based products. Various Danone products will be provided to the athletes, volunteers, spectators, guests and media personnel at the sites hosting the Paris 2024 events.
Antoine de Saint-Affrique, Danone’s Chief Executive Officer, commented:
“Danone and Paris 2024 share the same values and vision. The Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024 will celebrate a changing society—a society that’s dedicated to addressing social and environmental issues, that promotes health and well-being, and that draws strength from diversity and inclusion. This partnership speaks to our mission of bringing health through food to as many people as possible. All Danoners are immensely proud to support the world’s greatest sporting event as part of that commitment, which shapes our work every day.“
Tony Estanguet, Chairman of Paris 2024, added:
“Danone and Paris 2024 are natural partners in the quest to build a healthier world through a winning combination of exercise and food. Danone’s reputation and the key contribution its dairy and plant-based products make to the daily life of people throughout France will help us promote sports and share the energy generated by the Games even more widely. And Danone’s broader commitment to more sustainable, local products will help us meet the challenge of delivering 13 million meals during the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024. We’re stronger with Danone—and we can’t wait to start working together!“
Aside from the latest partnership with Danone, Paris 2024 also has partnership agreements with The Carrefour Group, Sodexo, Decathlon, Cisco, Orange, Optic 2000 and Accor.
