Danone

Emmanuel Faber is dedicated to revolutionizing the food industry in order to build a more sustainable planet, and as CEO of Danone, one of the world’s largest food companies, he is in a position to make this revolution a reality. Faber is asked how he reconciles the paradox of being a CEO of a food company advocating for major changes in the industry. He answers by explaining how he has never lost sight of his childhood growing up in a small village in the French Alps, and how he always bears in mind both the past and the frontiers ahead. Faber works to anticipate blind spots, and how this might mean overhauling the fundamentals of the food industry at large. He notes how people have never eaten as well or as much in the history of mankind as they do today, but in order to maintain and expand such a status, companies must consider externalities. The methods of standardization and globalization that are par for the course are going to have to shift towards more local-centric considerations if humanity is to survive and thrive. Read more.
