DanoneWave is to invest $60 million into its plant-based milk production
operation in Virginia, US.

The business operation, which comprises Danone and WhiteWave Foods, says
that the investment will expand production capacity, warehouse space and
create up to 50 new roles within the local area.

Dan Poland, chief supply chain officer for DanoneWave, said: “Our success as a
business is integrally linked to the ecosystem in which we operate, and we are
grateful to Virginia, the governor, his extended team, and everyone in
Rockingham county for being so encouraging and for providing such a
productive environment.”

Danone bought WhiteWave for $10.4 billion in April this year in what was its
largest acquisition since 2007.
