Danske Fragtmænd prioritizes quality food for employees

1 April 2024

At Danske Fragtmænd, the well-being of our employees is a top priority. Therefore, we are pleased to announce our latest initiative, Fragtfarmen, which aims to provide our canteens with high-quality, organic and self-sufficient food.

The project is initially intended for our terminal in Aarhus, where we will test the concept. The goal is for us to produce high-quality fruit, vegetables and small livestock at our locations. We have acquired a piece of land next to the terminal, which will serve as the center of the project. At the same time, we are establishing a greenhouse at the terminal, which allows us to grow fruits and vegetables all year round.

In order to supply Fragtfarmen with dairy products, we have entered into a cooperation agreement with Aarhus University Hospital on the use of their land where they already have grazing cattle. This gives us a unique and ecological opportunity to establish a small cattle production.

"At Danske Fragtmænd we are convinced that a well-functioning canteen is not only about satisfying hunger, but also about creating a space for social interactions and good conversations among our employees. We believe that Fragtfarmen will give our employees the best conditions for both tasty food experiences and meaningful breaks," says Hennie T. Pedersen, HR Manager at Danske Fragtmænd.

We look forward to seeing the results of the Fragtfarmen and hope to roll out the project to our other locations during 2025.
