This report tells the story of the food cluster in the Øresund region, which is located in the areas of Sjælland in Denmark and Skåne in Sweden. The Øresund region is a major European innovation centre with forecast annual growth rates of 2–5 % for the years 2006 and 2007, higher than the economy as a whole. The cluster has developed as a result of the transition of the food sector in the region from holding activities, primarily directed towards the food industry, to food-science activities.
