A leading panel of industry experts selected Chr. Hansen’s FreshQ concept at this year’s prize giving at Food Ingredients Europe in Frankfurt, Germany. The award is presented to a company that is breaking new ground in the food and beverage industry with an innovative, technical solution. Chr. Hansen’s next-generation FreshQ food cultures hit bull’s eye in that context, removing the main technical barrier for implementation of fermentation-enabled bioprotection to help reduce food waste.


After proudly accepting the award Marianne Gregersen (photo: Chr. Hansen), commercial development manager, Chr. Hansen, said: “We are very happy that the jury of food experts acknowledges the game-changing qualities of our  next-generation of FreshQ.  This innovation brings fermentation-enabled bioprotection to the dairy producers, who need it the most; making it possible to fight food waste in regions where cold chains can be challenged. The award motivates us even more to keep pushing the boundaries of fermentation.”
