Chr. Hansen’s vision to improve food and health is the guiding principle in everything we do. Our Food Cultures & Enzymes and Health & Nutrition businesses are built on a strong microbial platform. We discover new strains and enzymes, we develop optimal cultures and upscale them for larger bulk production.

The Board of Directors appoints the Executive Board responsible for the day-to-day management of the company and for observing guidelines and recommendations issued by the Board of Directors. The Executive Board is also in charge of presenting and recommending proposals for Chr. Hansen’s overall strategy and objectives to the Board of Directors.

Management Philosophy:

Generally, we have the same management philosophy across our three business areas and all our offices and subsidiaries, but individual managers each have their special qualifications, and each management position requires particular competencies.

We value our leaders and are constantly looking to develop their capabilities. For us, good leaders are the ones who empower others, who create a positive work environment, and who are able to set a clear direction and steer the boat in troubled water.
