Heritage
A foundation and identity rooted in mythology
Our foundation
In Nordic mythology Gefion is attributed with the creation of the Danish island of Zealand. In just one night Gefion used her magic powers to transform the sons of King Gylfir into oxen to plough and carve out fertile land to what is now the rich lands of Gefion. This legend has inspired our philosophy as reflected in our founding principles.
