De danske gærfabrikker
Since the 1970’s, the Danish yeast company De Danske Gærfabrikker has produced the yeast packages bearing the iconic red Maltese cross. For decades this product has been known as a Danish design classic. De Danske Gærfabrikker produce about 25,000 tonnes of yeast per year – equivalent to a staggering 500 million standard 50 g. packages!
A large part is sold to the bread industry, local craft bakers and grocery stores. In addition, De Danske Gærfabrikker produce specialties such as wine yeast, yeast extracts and yeast for animal and human nutrition.
We helped design infographics and brochures highlighting the story behind De Danske Gærfabrikker and the intriguing process of yeast production.
