– A family-owned holding and investment company

The first company was founded back in 1915 on confectionary production which later developed into chewing gum production. Exports of chewing started during the 50’s and it soon became worldwide managed from the HQ in Vejle, Denmark. The gum activities have comprised branded products like STIMOROL, DIROL and V6 and since 2002, development and manufacturing within Gumlink A/S of B2B gum for European supermarket chains. Today the development and manufacturing of B2B gum takes place in Turkey in a joint venture with the Yildiz group.
In Vejle, the gum production takes place within Fertin Pharma A/S. The focus is on medicated gum especially nicotine gum for the B2B market. In the beginning of 2017 Fertin Pharma A/S was sold to EQT but Bagger-Sorensen & Co. A/S kept 30 % of the shares.
For almost two decades, the Bagger-Sorensen family has also had an investment profile through the two companies: BS Invest (real estate) and Vecata Invest (investments in the venture segment). In 2020 the Bagger-Sorensen family expanded its direct investment activities establishing BS Equity focusing on direct investments in later stage and more matured companies.
