Danish agriculture organizations Landbrugsraadet (The Danish Agricultural Council) and Dansk Landbrug (Danish Agriculture) will merge with Danish Meat Association (DMA) to create a new organization representing the industry from "farm to fork."
The rationale for the change is to streamline the operations of the organizations currently representing Danish agriculture and the food industry and deliver a more efficient service for its members.
The headquarters of the new organization, which is yet to be named, will be at Axelborg in Copenhagen and is expected to be fully operational by summer. The governing body will consist of six people, representing both farmers and the food industry, with two separate boards to safeguard the individual interests of both groups. These will also be supported by a single board responsible for overseeing strategy, operating procedures and financial operations.
