The Dutch food processing sector generated net sales of $91.6 billion in 2019, driven by local demand as well as growing demand from other European markets. Increased attention to product reformulation and growing food awareness of more sustainable production procedures will continue to further shape the Dutch food processing industry in the years to come. Other consumer preferences continue to be affordability, convenience, and taste. Dutch food companies are always on the lookout for new food ingredients. Exporters from the United States compete directly with suppliers from European Union (EU) countries.
