Danish Crown's history begins in 1887, when the first Danish cooperative pig slaughterhouse was founded in Horsens. It all began in Horsens On 14 July 1887, 500 farmers in the Horsens region joined together and founded Denmark's first pig slaughterhouse. A founding general meeting was held, the land was bought, construction was started and the equipment was set up. On 22 December 1887, Horsen's Andelssvineslagteri was ready to slaughter the first pigs. It was a big event, and the local newspaper, Horsens Folkeblad, had sent a journalist to the slaughterhouse. - At 4 1/2 o'clock the first pig was "taken" almost literally "by the wing leg", that is to say a noose was placed around one of its legs and the pig was tailed to the weather up to the beginning of the iron running pole, the journalist begins the article with. Ever since the first slaughter at Danish Crown, emphasis has been placed on careful work. It was already noticed among the spectators at the first slaughter in 1887. - The audience in attendance admired the skill with which the master butcher performed the cut. A butcher here from the town bared his head in reverence; However, he could not do that afterwards, wrote Horsens Folkeblad. Denmark's first cooperative pig slaughterhouse was a success from the start. During the slaughterhouse's first year, 23,400 hogs were slaughtered and 2.2 million pounds of pork were sold. This resulted in a profit of DKK 75,400. The opening of the cooperative pig slaughterhouse attracted a lot of attention in Danish agriculture, and it was the start of a new era in Danish agricultural history. Cooperative slaughterhouses sprang up all over the country, and in 1962 there were 62 cooperative slaughterhouse companies in Denmark.
