DABS Event: Chr. Hansen – Improving Food & Health

Every day, more than 1 billion people worldwide consume a product with a natural Chr. Hansen ingredient. Significant potential remains within the remaining 6 billion people who demand tasty, healthy, natural, safe and affordable food and nutrition, and Chr. Hansen seeks to fulfil this demand with their range of natural solutions.

Wednesday, 6 September 2017, Chr. Hansen Executive Vice President Sten Estrup Nielsen and the APAC team in Singapore are hosting an event together with DABS to present the company’s products and share how they turn insights into opportunities. The event was previously scheduled for May 2017 but has due to unforeseen circumstances been postponed to now take place in September 2017.

In 2010, Chr. Hansen was reintroduced on the stock exchange after 5 years of private equity ownership. Since the IPO, Chr. Hansen’s shareholders have enjoyed a 4-fold increase in the share price and the company has consistently outperformed its peer group. The company has also significantly expanded its market presence in emerging markets i.e. China.

Chr. Hansen has just reaffirmed their Nature’s no. 1 Strategy and communicated their long-term 8-10% organic growth ambition supported by a series of strong megatrends. The company recently completed a study examining long-term, structural trends in food and health and will discuss how these findings relate to consumers’ food and life choices
