Let us promote the export of your Danish food

Food from Denmark is a consulting company whose primary mission is to promote the export of Danish food. Therefore, our slogan is: We create the framework for the export of Danish food. We do this using several export promotion activities: we organize participation in international food fairs for our customers, prepare export strategies and offer consulting. Finally, we have established a membership of Food from Denmark.

Food from Denmark was founded in 2005 by Karsten Nielsen, who at that time had worked with export of Danish food for 10 years. Karsten is still the driving force in the company and has over 20 years of experience through exports of Danish food. Karsten has participated in over 150 different international food fairs – from Chicago to Shanghai.

Our customers are mainly small and medium-sized Danish food producers who want to gain international visibility and meet foreign buyers and offer Danish quality food abroad. Our customers’ primary targets for international export markets are retail, food service and industry.

Determining your export strategy

Do you want to export your products, but you are unsure how to get started? Start with an export strategy. Your export strategy must be visionary and at the same time rooted in the organization as the common goal the employees are working towards on a daily basis. The strategy is the foundation from which export workers can excel, which ultimately leads to greater revenue for your company.

Do you want help with determining your export strategy? At Food from Denmark, we have extensive experience with export strategies and always delivers a well-thought-out and visionary strategy.

We have 10 years of experience with selling Danish food to international customers, and we know what issues arise when working with export. We are very practical in our approach, always adapting the solutions to the individual customer’s needs. We focus on specific sales leads, start-up of sales and knowledge databases, relevant market information, etc.

Export promotions at international fairs

Do you want to get to know your international customers? The best way to get to know someone is by meeting them. At an international fair you get the chance to do just that.

Is there an export project missing for the market you are interested in? Get in touch with us! If there are several customers who are interested in the same export market, we will submit a project proposal.

Dissemination of board members

Is your company’s board missing a board member with export experience? Through Food from Denmark’s large network, we mediate board positions.

A board member with relevant export experience can be essential for your company to get the right export strategy and reach its full export potential. The board member we match with your company brings updated knowledge and are not “sleeping partners”. They are often present at export meetings and thus provide great sparring to your company’s export employees.

Food from Denmark is responsible for analyzing your company’s needs, finding the right personal profile and having them placed on your company’s board.
