Introduction to our meat and fish cultures
Chr. Hansen was among the first companies to produce meat cultures, and today we are considered the world-leader in culture production and application. Through our long history in the meat industry, we have gained unique knowledge of the technologies used by our customers.
The success of Chr. Hansen’s meat starter cultures is based on the demand for uniform food products and a high level of food safety. Our cultures will eliminate the influence of the uncontrollable native flora and provide the requested food quality—from batch to batch.
