The world needs less but better meat that is as sustainable as possible. We view sustainably produced high-quality meat as an important source of protein and a natural supplement to plant-based foods in a balanced and healthy diet.
The market is constantly evolving, and the growing focus on sustainability is an opportunity to become even more relevant to customers and consumers. Therefore, we invest in developing new products in collaboration with customers and consumers to meet their demands and move towards a future of more sustainable foods together.
We value quality over quantity, and our goal is not to produce more pigs, but rather to increase value from the raw materials supplied by our owners. With convenience products and plant-based products becoming increasingly popular, we also invest broadly in innovation and production of such.
Explore a few examples of our products and concepts with a strong sustainable profile below. Ranging from plant-based proteins to high-quality meat with animal welfare as a priority.
Better Animal Welfare
Our Danish Veal concept focuses on high animal welfare and high quality and has been awarded two out of three hearts by the Danish state consumer label: Better Animal Welfare. Among other things, this involves calves being reared with more space per individual and short transportation to the abattoir.

Plant-based ready-made meals
We have launched our first range of plant-based ready-made meals in Denmark, introduced under our brand ‘Den Grønne Slagter’. All products are made without soy and with either Nordic or organic vegetables as main ingredients.
The Keyhole Nordic Nutrition Label
We offer products with the Keyhole Nordic Nutrition Label to help you make healthier choices. Products with the Keyhole label contain less salt and sugar, less or healthier fat, and more whole grains and fibre.
We are continuously improving our packaging and looking for ways to cut back and improve our solutions. That is why we have added waste sorting instructions to all newly designed packaging in the Danish market to help you recycle the packaging from our products correctly. This is just one small step but in the right direction.
