Danish Crown AmbA is a Danish food processing company, dealing primarily in meat processing of pork and beef. It is Europe's largest pork producer.[3] Through its subsidiaries, known as the Danish Crown Group, it is also involved in a long list of other food products. It is Europe’s largest pork-processing company and Denmark's largest beef-processing company, as well as its single largest agricultural exporter.

Danish Crown was originally formed in 1970 when Sydøstjyske Andelsslagterier in Kolding and Vojens merged, however in 1986 Danish Crown was itself merged into Tulip. In 1990, when Wenbo, Tulip and Østjyske Andelsslagterier merged they revived the name Danish Crown. Since then Danish Crown have taken over every major slaughterhouse in Denmark.[citation needed]

On October 13, 2010, the members voted to change Danish Crown from a cooperative to a joint stock company
