LEI Wageningen UR, 2013

Denmark’s food and agriculture sector is the third biggest in the world, exporting to more than 130 countries and accounting for almost a quarter of the nation’s goods exports. Our capabilities within research, innovation, and production span the food value chain. The most recent European Innovation Scoreboard ranks Denmark among Europe’s top countries for innovation.

Innovation Scoreboard


Many large international companies are based in Denmark, along with research-intensive universities, specialist knowledge organisations and budding growth businesses. Here, businesses have ready access to the rest of Europe – with 100 million of the world’s wealthiest consumers within easy reach. As a place to do business, Denmark ranks high in international indexes:

Doing business 2015 – World Bank “Denmark made starting a business easier by reducing the paid-in minimum capital requirement. Best countries for business – Forbes “This thoroughly modern market economy features a high-tech agricultural sector, state-of-the-art industry with world-leading firms in pharmaceuticals, maritime shipping and renewable energy, and a high dependence on foreign trade.”


New talents graduate each year from Danish universities and other educational institutions – a growing number of them with an education related to food and agriculture. Almost half the Danish population completes a further education programme. Opportunities to study in Denmark also attract thousands of students from abroad. Here, they find universities with a strong international reputation and a country that offers a good quality of life. 4 out of 6 Danish universities are members of Danish Food Cluster.


Invest in Denmark provide tailor-made solutions for foreign companies who consider establishing business and research activities in Denmark.
