Ingredients - Facing the Global Challenges with Danish Ingredients
Danish ingredients can be a silver bullet for many of the challenges facing the global food industry in the 21st century. As world demand grows for a safe and sustainable food supply, Danish ingredient companies enable feed and food manufacturers to make better use of resources, improve access to nutrition and support the health and wellbeing of livestock and consumers.
Using ingredients to solve the biggest food challenges of our age
Global demand for a safe and reliable food supply puts increasing pressure on the planet’s resources. The challenge for farmers and food companies is to produce enough food for the world’s growing population in a sustainable way. Ingredients play a central role in many of the solutions.
Danish ingredient companies make it possible for feed and food manufacturers to act on a fast-developing market trend, a change in legislation or consumer demand for more transparency in the supply chain. And, in the drive to produce more with less, ingredients create opportunities to cut back on waste while optimising food safety.

Danish collaboration – building a strong ingredient sector
Like other parts of the Danish food cluster, the Danish ingredient industry’s position as a world-leader is the result of decades of public-private collaboration. The Danish ingredient sector is dominated by partnerships where industry players work ambitiously with government authorities, scientific research institutions and other organisations to generate innovative technology, solutions and knowledge.
This includes collaborating with universities to develop new, climate-friendly protein sources from grass, for example, or with an NGO to investigate how whey ingredients can facilitate the production of affordable yoghurt for malnourished children in Ethiopia. Strong working relations with farmers are again key to developing and testing new feed ingredients, such as an enzyme that makes the potato pulp left over from starch extraction easier to digest as animal feed.
