Germany Food Processing Ingredients 2024

The food processing industry represents the fourth-largest industry in Germany. According to the Federation of German Food and Drink Industries (BEV) estimates, Germany produced $238.9 (€ 218.5)billion of processed food and drinks in 2022. That is an increase of 17 percent from 2021. However, the German food industry continues to struggle with subdued private consumer spending, inflation, and rising production costs. The look into the future is mixed. The following products have good sales potential on the German market: nuts, organic products, fish and seafood, highly processed ingredients, dried fruits, ready meals, and bakery products.
