Financial Controller

ReferenceP 153137
LocationBath - United Kingdom
Salary / RateExcellent remuneration package


The group’s turnover came to €14.982 billion in 2009.
Turnover growth thus increased 3.2% in 2009 on a like-for-like basis,
enabling the group to reach its growth targets and providing
proof positive of the effectiveness of the strategy established in
late 2008 to address the world economic crisis. The current operating
margin of the group is up for the 15th consecutive year, firmly
anchoring the global market positions: Today, in volume,
Danone is the world number 1 in fresh dairy products,
number 2 in bottled waters, number 2 in baby nutrition and the
European leader in medical nutrition.
The baby nutrition and medical nutrition businesses, which
Danone undertook in 2007 in buying up Numico, account
respectively for 20% and 6% of the group’s 2009 turnover and
increased significantly over 2008 (+7.9% and +11.4%). These two
lines naturally round off the group’s brand portfolio and are perfectly
aligned with its mission of bringing health through food to as many
people as possible.  Today, Danone is the only food group to focus
totally on health
