How did it start?

Chr. Olesen was founded in 1885 in Denmark by Mads Chr. Olesen. The company started as a small, family-run grocery and goods store. It soon developed into a local grain and feed supplier, providing local farmers with seeds and fertilisers for their farms. In 1992, Mads C. Olesen, the fourth generation, transformed Chr. Olesen into the distribution of feed, food, and pharmaceutical ingredients.
