The health and safety of our employees are absolutely paramount to us, which is why we have instituted a number of guidelines across the organization, while complying with protocols of global and local health authorities in each of the markets we operate in.

Many of our employees across the globe are therefore working from home these days to help slow down the spread of COVID-19. As a company we are committed to doing everything we can to sustain the functioning of our society and keep employees, partners and customers safe.

In these times of adversity, delivering to our customers remains a key priority for us. Securing global food supply is more crucial now than ever, and we are therefore pleased to confirm that we are still in full operational mode. Our production sites globally still run at normal capacity, and our inventories serve as a safety stock to give us a solid buffer should the situation change.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your regular Chr. Hansen contact – we are open for business.
