About the project Edit

Danone Research, a unit of Danone involving more than 1,200 employees worldwide, have reached a partnership agreement with Micropharma Limited, a Canadian firm specializing in biological sciences, to develop new technologies in cholesterol reduction for dairy products.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Micropharma will provide expertise combined with their patented technology in cardiovascular health, while Danone Research will bring its experience, market knowledge and equity financing of US$8 million.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Existing probiotic dairy products help to maintain the body’s natural and healthy balance. Future dairy products will focus on ensuring this balance addresses heart health issues. Probiotics in milk and dairy make sense for maintaining healthy blood lipids,” said Danone’s spokesperson, Anne-Julie Maltais

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

This project will have a worldwide impact as Danone distributes its dairy products all around the world.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

In the coming months, Micropharma and Danone Research will be working closely to develop a new marketable product. The injection of capital will allow greater financial flexibility to support Micropharma's research and activities in cardiovascular health and to develop other innovative projects.
