Learn from their decisions and compare with your organization.

While our roots stretch back to the foundation of Novo Terapeutisk Laboratorium in 1925, our story really began in 2000 when Novo was split into three independent companies: Novo A/S, Novo Nordisk A/S, and Novozymes A/S. We already had a strong portfolio of enzymes at this point, especially for the Food & Beverages and Household Care industries.“Our story in brief”

What others thought in 2018
Organization level – top class! Great speakers and relevant content. Very inspiring! I have found something useful for me from each presentation.
Well selected and interested topics. Also workshops was really good with interactions. Even workshops was really good prepared.
Well thought of setup. In other similar networking activities the sponsors are predominant which decreases the overall experience. At SO this is well balanced.Feedback from organizations joining Sourcing Outlook 2018
