Our take on the Danish Crown Graduate Programme

The Danish Crown group is a global meat processing company and among the largest in its field. The group is the World’s largest pork exporter and Europe’s largest pork processor. Danish Crown is Europe’s largest meat processing company and Danish Crown Beef is a significant player in the European beef market. Group turnover is app. DKK 60 billion with a workforce of more than 20,000 employees.


They managed to get through the COVID pandemic in strong fashion and is looking poised for a good 2021. Being one of the largest processors of food globally, many environmentalists have had them in their target. They continue to try and innovate to ensure a more sustainable future for food and food producers.


The Danish Crown Graduate program is a truly international program that focuses a lot on supporting you throughout your time there and on your personal development. As they don’t have a danish language requirement for their program and have several rotations, you are bound to experience all the colors of Danish Crown. With possibilities for international rotations in countries such as the UK, Sweden, Poland, Germany, Holland, China, Spain and more, you can expect all sorts of international challenges.


Previous graduates have spoken highly about the great support system and personal development. It is also very broad management programme which allows for curiosity. You are given responsibility early on, but if you are expecting to carve your way to the top by having sharp elbows – think again. The company is proud in it’s humble approach and cooperative team spirit. Finally it is a business that is undergoing a big transformation and therefore there is room for input no matter your position.
