I’m Jolien, good to meet you!

I’m a Senior Scientist

I’m focused on nutritional innovations for older adults with disease-related malnutrition or frailty. I work on nutritional formulations, evidence generation of products, and new product concepts.

My journey so far
  • Danoner since 2017
  • Junior Medical Affairs Manager
  • Senior Scientist Physical Frailty

Making a tangible difference to those in need

I really believe in the products we make; they can be of great value to our customers. It gives me energy to know I’m supporting people’s nutritional needs, and as I’m involved in the decisions that affect the nutritional formulation of the products, I know my work is having a real and direct impact. We invest in evidence generation to show the benefits of our products; we’re always looking to innovate and improve.

A great team to be part of.

All on the same page

It’s so international here, there are many different nationalities in my team, and there’s lots of people I enjoy working with. I feel supported by my managers and colleagues, we’re on the same page.

Explore and connect

I had opportunity to spend six months in another science team and with the support of my manager we made it happen. There’s great value in making connections here, learning how different teams operate and identifying new ways of working. I get great experience and energy from meeting new people and working with people I’ve not worked with before, and that’s encouraged here.

Lots of ways to grow

From day one I was made aware that there was a lot of opportunity here, but it’s important to go and talk to people, to let people know what you want. We can get a mentor to help us think about our development, and I’ve grown by looking after interns and taking on a first line-management role.

Jolien is looking for energetic and entrepreneurial people to join Danone. Sounds like you?
