Biotechnology and Ingredients in Denmark
Danish biotechnology and ingredients companies deliver products and solutions which contribute to solving global challenges such as the population growth, pressure on resources, climate impact and lifestyle diseases.

Danish biotechnology and ingredients companies focus intently on export markets. In 2013, companies within the feed and food sectors exported DKK 27 billion worth out of an annual turnover of DKK36 billion. This figure corresponds to approx. 5 % of the total Danish exports of goods and results in the sector having a 10 % market share worldwide.

This global view provides great business opportunities, but to an increasing extent also requires companies to operate on a larger and more complex market. Networks between new partnerships and new competitors will in future replace simple business models. Furthermore, companies will be challenged on their access to raw materials, new knowledge concerning customers’ needs and development of competences.
