As younger generations begin to exert a greater influence over the global economy, they will continue to ramp up demand for more responsible, sustainable choices across the gamut of what they consume.
As producers innovate to find ways to meet the moment by creating food that stay fresher for longer, greening their supply chains and stemming food waste between the factory and the kitchen table, Chr. Hansen’s newest generation of FRESHQ® cultures can help them to meet these objectives.
Bioprotection: taking inspiration from nature to build a more sustainable food future
Chr. Hansen has been a pioneer in advancing the science of bioprotection, where the best food cultures are used in fermentation to help keep food fresher, outcompeting contaminants (like yeast and mold) for space and nutrients. The result? Food with FRESHQ® cultures included in fermentation remains delicious and fresh for longer, giving consumers a wider window during which to enjoy it.
FRESHQ® is our world-class line of food cultures that help optimize the bioprotective properties of fermentation, improving the consumer experience and supporting sustainable consumption by minimizing food waste. They can be applied to a broad range of fermented dairy- and plant-based products.
