FOSS creates end-to-end solutions that secure and improve food quality. From raw material to finished product. Our analysis instruments refine measurements into information management that enables businesses to run intelligent data-driven productions with less waste and bigger yields. Controlling cost and quality across all sectors and value chains, we help food and agricultural producers limit the number of human errors, scale their business faster and reduce manual labour as well as labour costs. We call it analytics beyond measure.
Over the last 60 years, we have made it our business to define the standard of analytical solutions for the food and agricultural industry. We pioneered advanced analysis for the challenging production environments in the 1960’s, and we were the first to integrate chemical composition analysis in process lines. Now our resolve and ambition have also made us the international benchmark in the field of chemometrics and real time analytics.
FOSS is a 100% family-owned company and the leading supplier of innovative analytical solutions; 98 percent of FOSS’ business is generated outside Denmark. FOSS has more than 100 patents and more than 20 world-first product introductions. FOSS employs more than 1370 dedicated people worldwide and has manufacturing, research and development facilities in Denmark and China. Solutions are sold and supported through FOSS sales and service companies in 28 countries and by more than 75 distributors. Many employees have a top-level scientific or technical background, including more than 130 Master of Science and more than 20 PhDs in areas such as photonics, chemometrics, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, fermentation and bio-engineering, astrophysics, optical communication, physics, quality, nanotechnology, food science and adaptive radiotherapy. We also employ many factory-trained and certified support engineers stationed close to our customers.
Sustainability is an integral part of our business
At FOSS, we have a taken a holistic approach to Sustainability. It’s not only about conducting our business in a responsible and ethical manner. It’s also about developing solutions that make a difference in the world. We help our customers tackle difficult global challenges such as efficiency in food production, consistency in quality and food safety.
We are operating in a world with significant population growth, scarce resources, food safety scandals and growing concerns about the climate. As the leading business-to-business provider of dedicated analytical technology, we play a key role in this environment.
For example, our technology is increasingly important in expanding food supply by making rational use of increasingly limited resources, while ensuring the best quality food reaches the consumer. To address this challenge there is a need for the development of solutions that analyze and make data manageable and actionable throughout the production process. Information management of analytics will be the future of the food and feed industry, enabling producers to increase yields by being more efficient. Intelligent and automated processes that run on data will define our customers’ future production - and much of the 10% of our turnover we annually invest in research and development will be dedicated to this area.
