European Protein appoints new Chairman

The protein producer European Protein has appointed the former Bank Executive, Jan Svarre, as Chairman of the board for both European Protein and its parent company Fermentationexperts.

Jan Svarre has had a long carrier in Banking, as Bank Director of Sydbank A/S until 2019 and director and Country Manager for Personal Banking in Danske Bank back in 2013.

Jan Svarres current focus is directed towards board-and advisory board tasks along with management task in strategy, business development and management.

 When asked about the upcoming tasks as chairman, the newly appointed Chairman says:

” There’s no doubt that European Protein has developed a feed solution, that significantly and at a low-cost boosts health and productivity for animals. The company has a growing market share in the Danish market due to its unique animal feed, which helps the pig and poultry producers to increase their profits. But the potential is far from exploited. Together with the employees and the management team in both companies, I look forward to expanding the sales internationally.”

 Jens Legarth, the director of both European Protein and Fermentationexperts, is thrilled that Jan Svarre has accepted the position as Chairman of the Board:

” With Jan on our team, we are equipped for expansion, and we look forward to a fruitful collaboration, where we can benefit from Jan’s substantial experience with export and business development.”
