Hi, I’m Smita!

I’m a Product Development Manager

I’m based in India and I’m part of the Research & Innovation team that develops food products that help our customers live healthier lives.

My journey so far
  • Assistant Manager R&I Product Development
  • India’s SPOC for User Experience
  • Promoted to Manager R&I

My work makes the future possible

By balancing the needs and wants of our customers with the ambitions of the business and the sustainability of the planet, my work has a great impact on our vision of ‘One planet. One health’. It’s a vision I’m wholeheartedly committed to. We’re purely a health-driven company, every product in the portfolio contributes to the health of our consumers. And, closer to home, my family’s health has directly benefited from my work too, which is so good to see.

I love our culture of companionship

Everyone at Danone is very collaborative

There’s a sense of belonging here. We’re process-driven but informal, and everyone can widen their experience. It’s satisfying to know my work has health benefits for people all across the world.

There are some epic opportunities here

Since day one I’ve been encouraged to take on more responsibilities and be ambitious. I recently got to lead a project across multiple functions from initial idea to product launch. It was a lot of hard work, of course, but everyone at Danone fully supports each other to achieve great things.

I’m encouraged every day to make great things happen!

There’s a real culture of support and growth

There are so many programmes designed to take you beyond the current level of skill and knowledge associated with your role. Everyone, everywhere in the company has the support of their manager to do this, which is a rare thing in businesses of this size.

There’s a real culture of support and growth.
