Company description

Chr. Hansen is a leading, global bioscience company that develops natural solutions, sourced from nature, for the food, nutritional, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries.

Innovation is at the heart of our Nature’s no. 1 strategy, with vast investments in R&D allowing us to develop new solutions for a sustainable future, defined by natural ingredients.

Keep it great with bioprotection

Chr. Hansen is the owner of one of the world’s largest commercial collections of bacteria, numbering more than 30,000 strains. We like to refer to them as ‘good bacteria’.

We are bringing true innovation to the market with our new launch of 2nd Generation FreshQ® cultures. They have the highest inhibition spectrum against a wide range of yeast and molds found in dairy. Dairy manufacturers can now with confidence drop all artificial preservatives from their ingredient list – using FreshQ® natural bioprotective food cultures.

Go natural

Today, Chr. Hansen is the only provider of natural colors that combines 140 years of unique application and regulatory expertise with a strong, extensive global presence and the widest natural color portfolio in the industry.

Chr. Hansen Natural Colors offers a full range of FruitMax® coloring foods for any application, including a new range of oil soluble coloring foods for fat-based formulations. Our FruitMax® colors are clean label colors, crafted from fruits and vegetables using gentle and traditional processing methods.

Billions can’t be wrong

We have been delivering value to our partners – and, ultimately, end consumers worldwide – for over 140 years and we are proud that more than one billion people consume products containing our natural ingredients every day.
