Danish Crown to Export Meat Products to China

Danish Crown to Export Meat Products to China

Danish Crown’s subsidiary Tulip Food Company now has permission to export both sausages and canned products to China. Tulip Food Company has for several years been ready to export its products to China, but it is only now that all the details have finally fallen into place. Initially, it will be possible to export three categories. Sausages and salami/pepperoni from the company’s Svenstrup factory and canned products from the factory in Vejle can now be exported and sold to both the retail trade, online and to the foodservice sector in China.

“It clearly marks a breakthrough for Danish food exports. China is an extremely interesting market, and we already have agreements in place with partners wanting to sell our products. Therefore, I expect the first container to be shipped off within the next few weeks,” says Kasper Lenbroch, chief executive of Tulip Food Company.

Access to the Chinese market ties in perfectly with Tulip’s and the Danish Crown Group’s strategy which, in addition to focusing on the domestic markets in Northern Europe, includes plans for growth in Asia with their own factory in China as well as various global initiatives involving, for example, canned products and pepperoni.

For the Danish Crown Group, access to the Chinese market means that it will now be possible to get closer both to the retail trade and to the foodservice wholesalers, even before Danish Crown’s own factory near Shanghai is completed in 2019.

“For sausages and canned products alone, we see potential exports from Denmark of DKr250 million a year. It’ll take a few years to build to this level, but Danish pork already enjoys a strong position in China, so we’re hardly starting from scratch,” adds Kasper Lenbroch.

“In my opinion, the Danish Crown Group will soon have an almost ideal set-up in China. Extensive and well-established exports of fresh pork from Denmark will now be boosted by heat-treated products such as sausages and canned products. This will soon be complemented with local production based on Danish raw materials, which will put us in an extremely strong position in what in the space of just a few years has become one of Danish Crown’s most important markets,” says Jais Valeur, group chief executive of Danish Crown.
