Exports of bread and bakery goods from Germany continued to increase in the first half of 2022, data from the Association of German Plant Bakeries shows. Almost 753,100 tons of bread and baked goods were exported in the first half of 2022, around 30% of which was bread. By comparison, non-EU countries accounted for just 36,000 tons. The rest was made up of fine and long-life baked goods. The vast majority (594,000 tons) was exported to countries in the European Union. The biggest share of the exports goes to the Netherlands (20%), Poland (19%), France (13%), Italy (11%) and Belgium (9%).
“The figures for the first half of 2022 for the export of bread and baked goods from Germany once again show the great popularity of our products,” Armin Juncker, General Manager of the Association of German Plant Bakeries commented on the published foreign trade figures. He added that the large branches and delivery bakeries, in particular, have a dominant share of bread exports and contribute to “strengthening the image of German bread abroad”.
