Danish agriculture is a large net exporter of agricultural products and the contribution of agriculture plays an important role in the country’s economy. The primary sector accounts for 1.5% of Denmark’s total Gross Value Added (GVA). Pigmeat and dairy are the most important sectors in terms of production value. Denmark is responsible for 7% of the EU’s production of pigmeat and 4% of the production of raw milk.
Goal and strategy
Denmark’s Plan seeks the sustainable development of farming, food and rural areas while ensuring food security through a competitive agri-food sector. To reach this goal, continued modernisation and digitalisation, together with high environmental and climate standards, will be a key focus. This will be achieved through a wide range of interventions aimed at contributing to environmental, economic and social sustainability.
