Meet the Expert: Food & Drink Germany

31 July 2019

About the event

Book a free online 30 minute 1:1 meeting with our food and drink specialist from Germany. James is a Senior DIT Trade Adviser based in Dusseldorf. He is looking to connect with midland businesses that are interested in exporting to Germany have have the resources avaliable to tackle this very competitive market. 

Why Germany?

German imports of UK food and drink were worth £1.4 billion in 2017. There are significant growth opportunities in the following sub-sectors:

•    meat and dairy products
•    alcohol
•    biscuits
•    confectionery
•    snacks
•    vegan

The German food and drink industry is highly competitive, but until now has also been relatively conservative in its operating models. The introduction of new technology and digitalisation has helped to change this and resulted in the number of imports from the UK increasing.

The German public is becoming more open to new tastes and flavours. Food and drink imports from the UK remain concentrated at the medium to high end of the market, but interest is growing steadily, enabling the range of products to increase.
