Recently Business Insights, a consultancy (Hall, 2007), asked industry executives

to name innovative manufacturers in the dairy industry. The result (see

table 5.9) confirms our findings on Danone and Arla. Danone is very active in

functional foods and recently introduced a so-called cosmeceutical ('Essensis'),

a beauty product that claims to feed the skin from within. Nestlé scores high on

this list as it is well known for its adaptation to local needs, especially in emerging

markets. The survey by Business Insights also confirms Valio and Campina's

innovative reputation.
