This initial brand name of a yogurt started in chemists in Barcelona, to later on establish their headquarters in Paris and, finally, to land in the US.

History of a popular brand name of a yogurt

This brand name of yogurts and other dairy produce that has travelled round the world was first started by a Sephardi Jewish called Isaac Carasso in Barcelona in 1919.
This yogurt was first sold in chemists in Barcelona as a very healthy one that made easy digestion. It was, in fact, sold as a cure for all the ailments and many doctors used to prescribe it to their patients.
It became a popular and best selling one until they decided to move its headquarters to Paris where they built its first and big factory directed by Isaac Carasso's son, Daniel. Here their big success was to launch yogurts with flavours that delighted the French.
Having secured for themselves an outstanding place within the food market, this brand name of a yogurt moved forward and travelled to the US, although, they decided to change its original name of ''Danone'' for another for better spelling.
On these days, ''Danone'' or whatever it's called wherever it is, is a well established brand name, making millions of profits on sales out of their big choice of products.
Whether in Europe or in the US, ''Danone'' is there to apparently delight people.
Since their original natural yogurt that was thought to cure it all, they've created other products such as their ''Petit Suisse'' that delights children, but I wouldn't give to my child if I had one, because it's a real bomb of fat. ''Activia'' and Actimel'' are thought of to relieve one's tummy every morning and their star product ''Danacol'' is meant to lower bad cholesterol. To anyone its likes, but I wouldn't use them and it'd be for two reasons.
1. These are the most expensive ones of all the dairy products.
2. To relieve one's tummy every day, one only needs to have a balanced diet and to have an orange every day before breakfast. It's been tried and tested. The same applies for cholesterol, because if one doesn't have a diet rich in vegetables, fresh fruit and less fat intake, one can expect to have bad cholesterol under control.
Reading on the history of this famed brand name of a yogurt proves me that the Jewish, no matter where they are from, know no fatherland of their own. Israel may be their sentimental one, but they will go wherever they can make good business and profits for themselves.

Not sure about Danone yogurt, but other Danone food products are available in Indonesia. Danone biscuits are quite popular.
