The company was established in 1998 as an artificial casing company selling artificial casings in the Swedish market but also selling Danish hog casings.
In January 2002 the company acquired the casing processing and trading activities from HK Scan and is now processing all the hog casings in HK Scan and Danish Crown owned KLS Ugglarps slaughterhouses in Sweden. The company also supplies a variety of natural and artificial casings to the Swedish food industry.
Finland is one of the countries in the world with the highest consumption of sausages per capita and it was, therefore, natural for DAT-Schaub to set up in the Finnish market in the 1980’ties.
In 2002 DAT-Schaub acquired Lihan Vienti and in September 2006 became a majority shareholder in Thomeko Oy representing among other products the best artificial casings in the market.
