Danone Malaysia and Singapore country manager Koh Kok Meng said becoming a certified B Corporation is putting the flag in the sand to say that Danone Malaysia is committed to the impacts the company has on the environment and communities it serves. “When we started our B Corporation certification, the team was at the forefront of what we could do collectively as an organisation.

With this certification, Danone Malaysia and Singapore will be held to high standards of accountability, undergoing a recertification process every three years to update its impact assessment and recertify as a B Corporation.

Danone Malaysia and Singapore join among the ranks of 50 purpose-led businesses in Malaysia and Singapore that meet highly verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. As a specialised nutrition company, it has positioned itself as an advocate of iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) among Malaysian children.

This multi-site clinical study was conducted for six months across selected government clinics in Kelantan, Johor, Selangor, and Sabah.

The findings from the clinical study will further help to raise awareness of this critical issue provide a solution to improve the nutrition status in Malaysia and emphasise the importance of early intervention through proactive screening for anaemia by including it as part of primary care health screening programs.
