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

We have been delivering value to our partners – and, ultimately, end consumers worldwide – for more than 140 years. We are proud that more than 1 billion people consume products containing our natural ingredients every day.
