Netherlands: Food Processing Ingredients

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Dutch food processing sector generated net sales of $94 billion in 2020. The industry has been hit hard by the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the measures taken by the Government. For many companies, their turnover, production, exports, and profits have fallen sharply. Food companies that predominantly supply the HRI-Foodservice sector have been hit the hardest. Driven by consumer needs for healthier and more nutritious products, there is increased attention among food processing companies to reformulate products. Growing awareness of more sustainable production procedures will continue to further shape the Dutch food processing industry in the years to come. Other consumer needs continue to be affordability, convenience, and taste. Dutch food companies are always on the lookout for good quality and innovative food ingredients. Exporters from the United States compete directly with suppliers from other European Union (EU) Member States.
