Danone North America, a leading food and beverage company, has announced it will invest up to $65 million over the next two years at the company’s existing facility in Jacksonville, Florida, through the addition of a new bottle production line. This investment will support Danone North America’s long-term growth strategy, and will deliver key benefits across the U.S. business, including supporting on-going growth, advancing operational excellence, enabling flexibility in bottle design, accelerating the company’s sustainability goals, and driving cost efficiencies.

This multi-million-dollar investment to expand the company’s bottle production capabilities will increase production of several of Danone’s coffee and creamer brands in the U.S., including International Delight, Silk and SToK. It also serves to meet consumer demand in these categories while supporting the company’s sustainability goal by reducing overall water consumption, decreasing carbon emissions and accelerating the company’s goal of packaging circularity.

The expansion will also lead to the creation of up to 40 new full-time jobs with competitive wages and benefits. In addition, new employees will be eligible for Danone North America’s parental bonding leave policy, enabling all manufacturing employees with a year of tenure to take up to 18 weeks paid time off after the birth or adoption of a child.

Danone North America is committed to bring health through food to as many people as possible through purpose-driven, market-winning growth. As a B CorpTM, Danone North America leverages its business as a force for good to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy through its family of brands.
