Organic Denmark (Økologisk Landsforening) is an association of organic companies, farmers, professionel kitchens and consumers in Denmark. Organic Denmark is Denmark’s only independent organic voice. We work 100% for organics and always with the interests of organics in mind.
In Organic Denmark, we work closely with UN's Sustainability Goals.
Who we are
Organic Denmark is an association of Danish companies, farmers, professional kitchens and consumers making us the largest representative of the organic food industry in Denmark. We collaborate widely with everyone who wants to take part in a significant and necessary transformation of the society. A transition that aims for a society where climate, nature and earth’s resources are in balance. Our aim is therefore to work for a world that thinks and acts organically – for the benefit of people, animals and our Earth.
Organic Denmark has successfully brought together the entire organic sector in Denmark comprising 200 companies in a coordinated marketing strategy. This is the basis for a close partnership between Organic Denmark and the retail chains, a partnership which creates success for organics in retail, from discount retailers to more exclusive shops or food service.
Organic Denmark has, in fact, built close partnerships with all Danish retail chains over the last 20 years. The organisation gets close to the individual chain in order to tailor strategies and product lines that match the individual chain´s customer base, profile and market position.
What we do
Organic Denmark is instrumental in helping the smaller companies to work professionally with retail. We also help the individual retailer develop their organic marketing strategy, expand their organic product lines and carry out in-store events and PR.
Organic Denmark also provides foreign trading partners with an overview of and easy access to all Danish organic companies and products. Organic Denmark works hard to promote organic products in other countries and is therefore responsible for the stand “Danish Organics”.
