ESS-FOOD is a global supplier of different food products within the Danish Crown family. We buy products in 48 countries and sell products in 96 countries around the world, which makes ESS-FOOD one of the largest trading companies within the food business globally.

We have a complete setup of people concentrated around trading – which include both sales, purchase, shipping, logistics, finance, HR, and administration.


With 18 offices in 16 countries and annual sales of over 400.000 tonnes, the ESS-FOOD group is among the leading suppliers of products to food manufacturers, retailers, caterers, and distributors throughout the world. Our headquarter is situated in the centre of Copenhagen and we employ about 140 colleagues around the world.

Our range of chilled and frozen meat products is virtually endless. We offer a countless number of product combinations based on pork, beef, poultry, and lamb. Cuts, recipes, packaging, and other important elements can be customized to meet our customer’s specific requirements.

We see ourselves as much more than a supplier of different food products. Our goal is always to establish a value-adding partnership with our customers as well as suppliers around the world. We are known for our thorough knowledge of local markets and thus we can meet local needs and demands, providing customers and suppliers with the highest level of service and competitive prices.


We operate in a busy and dynamic industry where no two days are alike. That means that proactivity, agility, and flexibility are key words in our environment and daily operation. Further, the atmosphere is informal, energetic, and full of cultural contrasts and diversity. We believe that this is contributing to our strong international foundation and are playing a key part in how we can succeed – together.

At ESS-FOOD, our employees are the core of our business. We therefore do our utmost to invest, develop and motivate our people – both individually and collectively.

We always strive to be better – and therefore we are always on the lookout for individuals who can contribute to our development. So, if you want to become part of an ambitious, informal, and result-oriented culture – we would be happy to hear from you.
