LMC, the Danish Centre for Advanced Food Studies, is the first
recipient of the Danisco Food Award for its innovative work in the
field of food research.

Mariann Fischer Boel, Denmark's Minister for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, has presented the first Danisco Food Award to the Centre for Advanced Food Studies (LMC) for its pioneering work in the area of food research over the last 10 years.

The Food Award 2002, worth DKr500,000 (€68,000) was presented to LMC at Danisco's first Food Industry Trends Symposium yesterday. The Symposium was created to address consumer demands for quality, health and convenience.

"The Centre for Advanced Food Studies has brought Danish food research up to, and in some cases even ahead of, international standards. When the centre was established in 1992 by the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University (KVL) and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), two essential elements of food research were combined: food safety (KVL) and food technology (DTU). The combination is unique and LMC's research within the field is unparalleled in Denmark,"​ said Alf Duch-Pedersen, CEO of Danisco.

"We are very pleased to receive this award. We celebrate our 10th anniversary this year and to us the award is confirmation that we are on the right track. The money that comes with the award will be spent on further enhancing our research facilities and not least on broadening the knowledge about food science to potential students,"​ said Anne Busk-Jensen, head of the Centre for Advanced Food Studies.

Elsewhere at the Food Industry Trends Symposium, a group of Danish and international scientists presented the latest advances within food technology, including sustainable production methods which ensure safe and even health-promoting ingredients for the industrially processed food industry.
