The National Food Institute wants to make a difference, nationally and globally, as it continuously conducts ambitious research of high international quality in favour of society. The Institute provides benefit and brings its knowledge into play by offering teaching, value-creating innovative solutions, and providing advice to national and international public authorities for the benefit of society. This motivates everybody at the Institute and gives staff a sense of purpose in their work. The vision of the National Food Institute is to prevent disease and promote health, to create sustainable technological solutions, and to develop new and better food products for a growing world population. These visionary goals are consistent with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Thus, the Institute wants to solve some of the biggest challenges the world is facing. Most of the Institute was founded back in 1959 when the law on establishing a united national food institute was adopted. Based on research and monitoring, the Institute was to advise Danish public authorities and other national stakeholders on food safety and nutrition. Since then, the Institute has achieved many results and expanded its working area significantly. I am immensely proud of being at the head of the dedicated staff at the National Food Institute these years. It gives me great pleasure to celebrate the Institute, its staff , and many opportunities on the occasion of the Institute’s 60th anniversary. We hope that this anniversary publication will inspire you, whether you are a student, a cooperating partner from public authorities or the industry, or a research colleague from other universities. Moreover, we would like to invite you to a deeper conversation at the National Food Institute so that we can discuss how we can make a difference together and solve some of the world’s global challenges.
