An overwhelming majority of Tican and Danish Crown’s owners approved the merger of the two cooperative societies.
Both in Hanstholm, where Tican held its general meeting, and in Horsens, where Danish Crown’s Board of Representatives was gathered, the merger was approved with very widespread support.
The merger of the two cooperatively owned slaughterhouse businesses was decided after Tican had been looking to find an economic business partner for some time.
Among Tican’s owners, 91% said yes to the merger, while for Danish Crown’s Board of Representatives the figure was 100%.
The merger must now be approved by the relevant competition authorities.
