At Danish Crown, we continually strive to improve what we do – from farm to fork – so people around the world can enjoy tasty meals, with full confidence. We have roots back to 1887 and the Danish cooperative movement, so responsibility towards society, employees and our owners, the farmers, is part of our DNA.
Being a global leader in sustainable meat production is a big responsibility. Not only must we deliver the goods, we must also constantly explore new possibilities. We still have a long way to go and many challenges ahead. But we are determined to find better ways to produce food – with respect for livestock, people and the environment. On the road to our goal, we are ready to challenge ourselves, the sector and our customers.
We promise to take the lead, but cannot finish the journey alone. Only together can we make food production more sustainable and fundamentally change our relationship to what we eat and how it is produced.
This means that by the end of 2019, 90 per cent of the pigs supplied to Danish Crown will come from farms with a sustainability certificate and we aim to reduce our climate impact by 50 per cent in 2030.
