Agricultural exports booming

The nation’s agricultural businesses set a new record for exports during the first six months of the year, according to data released by lobby group Landbrug & Fødevarer.

Exports grew 9.4 percent to 78 billion kroner, and the organisation expects exports to surpass a record 160 billion kroner for the year.

The growth comes on the back of expanding exports of agriculture-related products – which also include agricultural machinery – to Asia. Among the most significant exports were dairy products, meat and luxury items, such as fur. Exports to Europe were also strong.
