There are approx. 800 farmers supplying Friland, and they are represented on the company’s Board of Directors in proportion to the revenue of each single production concept. As part of Danish Crown, Friland uses the group’s production and distribution facilities. All the pigs and cattles are slaughtered at Danish Crown’s modern slaughterhouses, which are authorised by the EEC and approved by US Department of Agriculture (USDA). The meat is cut and packed at Danish Crown’s cutting and retail packaging departments, which meet the highest food safety standards.
In the Danish market, Friland sells organic beef and pork under brands such as Friland Organic, Friland Free Range Pork and Friland Beef. Furthermore, we supply meat for private label products and to butcher’s shops as well as foodservice and food-processing companies.
A large proportion of Friland’s production is sold on the international market, and the company is a significant supplier of organic meat to European processing companies.
