Report this content

AFRY enables a new sustainable development centre for the dairy industry together with Chr. Hansen. As their partner, AFRY has been entrusted to support building the dairy application centre with the aim of developing new sustainable products.

Chr. Hansen develops natural ingredient solutions for amongst others the food industry. With these solutions they touch the lives of more than 1 billion people every day. On a global level, consumers are increasingly looking for real food, which at the same time is tasty, healthy and sustainable. In order to continue to successfully address these evolving consumer demands, Chr. Hansen has decided to build a new Application Test Centre (ATC) in Hoersholm, Denmark.

AFRY has been a project partner for more than ten years to Chr. Hansen, and has been involved in the ATC project already from the basic design, which includes milk reception, milk processing and production of fresh dairy and cheese. A cross-functional team from AFRY is responsible for project management, process design, automation, pipe and electrical construction, quality assurance, manufacturing, assembly, installation and commissioning of this new sustainable development centre.

“We have chosen AFRY as our trusted partner to embark on this exciting construction project. They have a broad range of technical competencies, which covers every relevant discipline, and they understand how both the food ingredients industry and our customers work. That is why we are strongly convinced that together we will build a world-class flagship for dairy application,” says Torsten Steenholt, Executive Vice President, Global Operations, Chr. Hansen.

“We are proud to contribute to meeting the growing global need for new and more sustainable food products by once again being given the confidence by Chr. Hansen to work together,” says Robert Larsson, EVP and Head of Industrial & Digital Solutions Division, AFRY.
