In his report at Danisco's Annual General Meeting, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Anders Knutsen, said among other things:

Just a few years ago, Danisco was an entirely different business than today. It was a distillery and some factories producing jam, crispy onions and packaging – apart from sugar and a few ingredients.

Today, the company is a focused ingredients company comprising enzymes, cultures, emulsifiers, pectin and sugar just to mention a few. Our ingredients are eaten around the clock by a multitude of people because they are used in everyday food. Our global ingredients business has factories and sales offices in more than 40 countries as well as comprehensive research and development activities. We are at the forefront of research and are rightly perceived as an advanced biotech company. That is why in my welcome note a moment ago I talked about Danisco as it is today.
