The European Investment Bank (EIB) has provided a €75 million loan to Chr. Hansen for the company’s research into and development of innovative solutions in the food, nutritional, pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. The EIB financing will boost the company’s efforts to develop food products with a reduced amount of sugar, salt and fat, as well as an extended shelf life.

The EIB loan will also be earmarked for Chr. Hansen’s development of natural solutions improving the stability of probiotic cultures, protecting agricultural crops and exploring bacterial applications to human health. The global bioscience company will develop new products for its historical businesses covering dairy ingredients for cheese and fermented milk, cultures for meat and wine, as well as probiotics for human and animal health. At the same time, Chr. Hansen is also increasingly focusing on human health applications, in particular gastrointestinal health, immune health and women’s health.

The project will be carried out at Chr. Hansen’s main research and development centre located in Horsholm (Denmark) and in Saint-Germain-lès-Arpajon (France). Over the project period until 2018, some 80 new research and development jobs are expected to be created.
