The European Commission (Commission) has found that the proposed acquisition of Numico by Danone would raise competition concerns in France, Belgium and Holland. Danone has global interests in water and fresh dairy products. Numico manufactures and distributes baby food and nutritional products. The overlap between the two undertakings is in the baby food sector. The merger was cleared on condition that Numico sells its baby milk and baby drink business in France. In Belgium, Danone must divest itself of its baby milk, baby snacks and baby drink activities and in Holland, it must dispose of its baby meal and baby snack business.
