HOERSHOLM, DENMARK — Chr. Hansen plans to establish a campus with laboratories for an additional 250 scientists at its main office in Hoersholm. A new application center will allow Chr. Hansen to work together with its customers to test and make new products. Groundbreaking should take place next year. Chr. Hansen expects the project to be finished late in 2022.
