Danish Crown is one of Europe’s largest meat producers and processors, with leading market positions in both the beef and pork markets. The company is owned by the cooperative society Leverandørselskabet Danish Crown AmbA, which has an elected management consisting of 6,426 cooperative members. Danish Crown has four main business areas: agriculture (rearing of animals by farmers), fresh meat (slaughtering, processing and sales), foods (processing and packaging of meat products for direct consumption) and casings (use of by-products). It serves 100 million consumers across its main markets of Denmark, Poland, Sweden and the United Kingdom, with a global presence covering North and South America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia and market access to over 130 countries worldwide.
Danish Crown ranks 13th among animal protein producers, demonstrating particular leadership in the environment dimension where it places third amongst companies in the livestock, dairy and seafood industries. As noted above, the company has most room for improvement in the nutrition measurement area in order to close the gap to leading companies in this segment, particularly in relation to increase the availability, affordability and accessibility of healthy food, and could also further improve in relation to social inclusion despite placing in the top ten animal protein companies. The company also sits 62nd among companies that manufacture or process food and beverage products.
