The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration (known as the Fødevarestyrelsen) has announced Denmark will lift its temporary ban on keeping mink as of January 1, 2023. The ban had initially been imposed for 2020/2021 for the sake of public health during the coronavirus pandemic and was later extended to include 2022. With roughly 1,200 farms, Denmark had been the world's largest producer of mink skins prior to the coronavirus pandemic.
