The need to shape a more sustainable future for our planet and the generations to come is urgent. Challenges such as climate change, food waste, global health and the overuse of antibiotics and pesticides are all pressing issues that society and industry need to address. At Chr. Hansen, we are uniquely positioned to drive positive change through our sustainable microbial solutions and enable a future that values nature as the foundation of a healthy society.

For almost 150 years, we have worked to enable sustainable agriculture, better food and healthier living for more people around the world. We have come far on our journey and delivered strong results, and as we continue to unlock the power of good bacteria through new technologies, there is so much more we can do. That is why, at the heart of the 2025 Strategy, is our purpose, to Grow a better world. Naturally.

The 2025 Strategy

The coronavirus has changed the world as we know it, but as the world navigates in unknown territory, the food and health industries continue to play vital roles. Consumers around the world increasingly focus on health, food safety, quality and affordability.

The needs of our customers are evolving as they seek to improve productivity while accelerating their innovation efforts to meet these changing consumer preferences. The 2025 Strategy will enable us to turn these challenges into opportunities. We will focus on areas where our unique microbial and fermentation technology platforms match customer needs and global trends – making us highly relevant today. And in the future.

Driven by our unique culture, our 2025 Strategy will cement our position as a global, differentiated bioscience company, by re-investing in our core and unleash the potential of our five lighthouses.

With the 2025 Strategy, we have a tremendous opportunity to make a difference for people, animals and plants. And ultimately for our planet. That is why we will continue to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals through our solutions, invest in greener production and make a strong climate commitment by joining the Science Based Targets initiative to limit the global temperature rise.

Together, we are pioneering microbial science to improve food, health and productivity for a sustainable future. That is a quest that we are passionate about. Being a purpose-led company with a technology platform that can both help our planet and tackle societal challenges also comes with a great responsibility to do well by doing good.
