Horizon 2015

France

Social & business context

The Common Agricultural Policy’s quotas end in 2015. Milk producers will be strongly impacted by this change and their business might be threatened. 
Danone Produits Frais France aims to provide capacity-building to French milk producers by anticipating major changes and fostering their transformation into entrepreneurs. 

Solution
With the support of the Danone Ecosystem Fund, Danone Produits Frais France and its local partner, L’institut de l’Elevage, co-created the “Horizon 2015” project to strengthen farms’ cost optimization through the implementation of an audit system. The project also creates a breeding institute, delivering entrepreneurship programs to encourage the sharing and implementation of best practice among farmers.  

Social & business impacts
The project empowers existing milk producers with sustainable practices.
DPFF secures sustainable sourcing (quantity, cost etc) while contributing with other key stakeholders to improving farm conditions.
This project supports milk-producing businesses in France.
