Chr Hansen has released its 2025 Strategy with the ambition to create a differentiated bioscience company with focus on its microbial and fermentation technology platforms, putting Food Cultures & Enzymes and Health & Nutrition at the centre.
During the strategy period, which runs until the end of the financial year 2024/25, Chr Hansen’s long-term financial ambition is to deliver mid to high single-digit organic growth, averaged over the period. Furthermore, the Company plans to increase its underlying EBIT margin before special items, before portfolio changes and currency impacts, with efficiency gains and scalability benefits from operations, as well as synergies from recent acquisitions, to be partly reinvested into the business during the strategy period. Average growth in free cash flow before acquisitions and special items is expected to exceed the average absolute EBIT growth.
CEO Mauricio Graber commented: “Chr Hansen has undertaken a tremendous journey since its start as an ingredient supplier to the dairy industry, and I feel very proud to lead a company with such a strong purpose and so many exciting growth prospects. With the launch of our 2025 Strategy we are stepping up our game to unlock the next wave of value creation by advancing Chr Hansen into a focused global bioscience player that specialises in fermentation technology and microbial solutions. With this focus we will be uniquely positioned and clearly stand out in our industry.”
“At Chr Hansen, we will continue to pioneer microbial science to improve food and health, for a more sustainable future. Already today, more than 80% of our revenue contribute to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, and we are committed to continuing to leverage the Power of Good Bacteria which is also reflected in our newly defined purpose: ‘Grow a better world. Naturally.’”
