The Danish food cluster


The Danish food cluster is built on the Nordic tradition of collaboration across companies, customers, researchers, public authorities – and even competitors. The cluster brings some of the most innovative solutions to life, benefitting the world’s production of healthy and sustainable foods.

The Danish food and agricultural sector is the third biggest food cluster in the western world and is characterised by a special way of working. The Danish food cluster is known for its close and trusted relationships throughout the value chain. These qualities have earned the Danish food industry an excellent reputation for delivering strong solutions, high quality products and fruitful close collaborations.

Danish companies have flat management structures and a high level of employee involvement. This has created an open culture that offers great benefits ranging from increased innovation to improved productivity and full compliance with all relevant standards and legislation.

Many Danish global brands are owned by farmers and are built up on their hard work: democratic cooperatives that continue the traditions of responsible practices and quality - from animal traceability to taste and innovation.
