Proud to be the pioneer of plant-based eating and drinking, Alpro has been creating delicious plant-based alternatives to milk, yogurt, cream, custard, desserts and ice cream for 40 years, made from either non-GM soya beans, coconuts, almonds, hazelnuts, rice or oats. Alpro, being part of Danone, has its head office in Ghent (Belgium) and three production facilities in Belgium, France and the United Kingdom. Alpro markets its products in Europe and beyond and contributes to further growth of plant-based food. Since 1980, Alpro has had the single minded purpose to pioneer healthier eating and sustainable living. In 2018, Alpro received the B Corp certification because of its efforts to combine social and environmental goals with financial success. We’re proud to say that in 2021 Alpro is a Best for the World B Corp for Environment. Alpro takes its ambition further, with a health and sustainability pledge called “Feeding our Future with Plants” launched in 2020. With commitments centered around two topics, Health and Planet, Alpro’s ambition is to promote a measurable dietary shift towards more plant-based eating by 2025.
The Shift helpt leden gebruik maken van het globaal kader van de UN Sustainable Development Goals om hun maatschappelijke ambities in kaart te brengen.
12. Responsible consumption and production
We are striving for a more sustainable food system with the aim of preserving the world’s ecosystems and services for future generations. Throughout many programs we share information and raise awareness on responsible, plant-based food consumption to a wide audience of consumers, policy makers and businesses.
17. Partnerships for the goals
Alpro has created long-term, multi-program and strategic partnerships around the huge societal challenge of a healthier and more sustainable food system, on topics such as sourcing, carbon reduction and promotion of sustainable diets.
13. Climate action
We want to do business in a way that means we can keep doing it for years to come. We aim to leave almost no footprint behind and where possible, leave the world better than how we found it. Improving how we source and grow food, creating our products with zero impact and moving towards more plant-based and recycled packs, making everything 100% recyclable, these are our main objectives.
