Torben Carlsen and Jais Valeur, CEO of Danish Crown, sign the agreement that extends DFDS’ and Danish Crown’s cooperation on the transport of meat from Esbjerg to Immingham until mid-2023.
DFDS’ sailings from Denmark to the UK are as old as the Danish supply of bacon for the infamous full English breakfast. Now we are certain that the export of bacon to the UK will continue out of Esbjerg for at least another 2.5 years.
Yesterday, Torben Carlsen and Jais Valeur, CEO of Danish Crown, signed the agreement on this at Danish Crown’s head office in Randers, Jutland. Torben was accompanied by Peder Gellert, EVP of the Ferry Division, and Kell Robdrup, SVP of BU North Sea South, who had negotiated the contract details.
“It was a very good day for DFDS. The meat export is a considerable part of our volumes on the Esbjerg-Immingham route and we are quite proud of being part of one of Denmark’s oldest export successes,” says Kell.
Due to the long standing and close cooperation with Danish Crown, it has also been agreed that DFDS will support Danish Crown with import customs services after the end of the Brexit transition period.
