The insects return

Insects are an important part of the daily diet for millions of people. Except in the West, that is, where hundreds of years ago, they disappeared from the daily menu. Why that happened, we can only guess. But many agree that it’s time to get them back on the table. Because, as a sustainable source of protein, insects are hard to beat. Some even say they are the new superfood we can’t afford to ignore. In Denmark, a small team of entrepreneurs are doing what they can to make it happen. On...


Farming and the city

Have you heard how many people are moving to the cities these days? Does that make you wonder about who’s going to grow the food? In Denmark, a community of like-minded people have come together to help secure the global food supply for generations to come. Together, they have formed Growstack – an open source, foodtech project that is all about bringing farming to the cities. The Growstack team tells their visionary and innovative story in this episode of Foodpod Denmark.


Day of the plants

Most of the milk they produce is poured away – simply because they have no way to store it and no one to sell it to. That's a serious situation – and not just for the farmers. For the children of low-income Senegalese families, it means an important source of nutrition is lost. And the rate of child malnutrition is high. This is the story of the visionary young vet, Bagoré Bathily, who started a dairy to...

Healthy chicken business

The chicken business is booming. Today, in the US, the largest chicken producer slaughters as many as 35 million birds a week to keep up with demand. You might think that the poultry business has never had it so good. But over the past few years, consumers have started to demand chicken reared without antibiotics. Worried that antibiotic-free farming will harm the birds and lower profits, US poultry farmers are turning to Danish innovation for a solution. To see pictures, visit!


The student challenge

The battle for talented young people is on in the business world. So, how can food companies come across as the most exciting career option? Through a student challenge, of course.

The get well sherbet

Undernourishment is a real problem for hospital patients.

Aalborg University Hospital, DuPont Nutrition & Health and Aabybro Dairy have teamed up to tempt patients with a light and refreshing, nutritious snack.
