The Dannon Company Announces Second Yogurt and Probiotics Fellowship
Program

Scholarship Will Aid Winning Student's Academic Exploration in the Field
of Yogurt and Probiotics

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Dannon Company announced today
the launch and expansion of the second Dannon Yogurt and Probiotics
Fellowship Program to promote the education of a student who shows a
strong interest in the research of nutritional and functional benefits of
yogurt and probiotics. Building on the success of last year's inaugural
program, the company will award a scholarship of $25,000 to an incoming or
current graduate student.

The Dannon Company is thrilled with the success of last year's Fellowship
Program, said Dr. Miguel Freitas, Director of Health Affairs at The Dannon
Company. This year, we've expanded the program to include a focus on the
nutritional benefits of yogurt, which will encourage applications from a
broader group and facilitate research and education on nutrition and
yogurt in addition to probiotics. The expansion of the Fellowship Program
is aligned with Dannon's focus as a leader in the Yogurt and Probiotics
category, and we are proud to support the future generations of
researchers and scientists in this evolving and exciting field.

Research continues to show the benefits of yogurt, which can contain
probiotics and deliver important nutrients including protein, calcium and
vitamin D, said Keri Glassman, nationally recognized dietitian, founder
and president of Nutritious Life, and one of the jury members that will
award this year's fellowship. The Dannon Probiotics and Yogurt Fellow
Program provides an invaluable opportunity for students to further that
research and demonstrates Dannon’s commitment to advancing the science of
yogurt and probiotics.

Last year's fellowship was awarded to Nicholas Bokulich from the
University of California, Davis, who used the scholarship to further his
interest and studies on the use of foods as a delivery vector for
beneficial bacteria in the human diet.

Scholarship applications are currently being accepted, and must be
submitted by April 15, 2013 to be considered. The winning applicant will
be determined by a cross-functional panel of experts specializing in the
field of yogurt, probiotics, and nutrition. The application and full
scholarship details are available at www.dannon.com/fellowship.

About the Dannon Probiotics and Yogurt Fellow Program

To qualify for the Dannon Probiotics and Yogurt Fellow Program,
individuals must be currently enrolled in or applying to a full-time
graduate program. Only incoming or current graduate students will be
considered. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older, show proof of US
residence and be able to utilize the scholarship funds for the 2013-2014
academic year at an accredited U.S. institution. Applicants will be
required to submit an application package, including but not limited to a
personal essay, recommendations from two professors, and proof of good
academic standing. The application and full scholarship details are
available at www.dannon.com/fellowship.

One winner will be selected by an expert judging panel. The Dannon Company
will not provide the scholarship recipient a check, but will instead work
directly with the individual’s graduate school finance department to
credit $25,000 either for tuition, or research related projects or as
otherwise allocated at The Dannon Company’s discretion.
