Effective January 1, 2022, Numil Kft. has transferred its infant and clinical nutrition business to Danone Hungary Kft., thus the entire domestic activities of the Danone Group will be operated by a single company, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal
This move is the next step in the company's "Local First" plan to transform its operations in Hungary.
In November 2020, the parent company announced its global plan to restructure and reorganize Danone. At the heart of the plan is the idea of making the company more efficient by having a single business unit in each country. In this way, all of Danone's businesses and product categories would be represented by a single company, with these local companies having greater autonomy in decision-making.
As a first step in the creation of the new structure, Danone's two Hungarian companies were brought under joint management last October, with a management team led by managing director Gábor Kralovánszky.
"This is a very important step in the history of Danone in Hungary, as we can continue our mission as a stronger unit to provide a healthy lifestyle to as many Hungarian consumers as possible through our products. In addition, we can express more emphatically that we support healthy and balanced nutrition at all stages of life. Through our global vision "One Life, One Planet", we will drive sustainable growth by finding new ways to promote healthier diets through an even stronger portfolio of purpose-driven products, brands, and services," Kralovánszky.
