“Barcelona is super attractive to international talent, so that brings everything we can wish for”

Nicolas Cosqueric, CIO for Southern Europe at Danone



Danone chose Barcelona to install its new Digital Hub for two main reasons. The first one it's that Danone was born in Barcelona more than 100 years ago, so the city connects directly with Danone's roots.

According to Nicolas Cosqueric, the second reason is that Barcelona is in the middle of a great technology ecosystem, innovative technology, and excellent universities. All these reasons bring together everything Danone wishes.
