The food and drink industry is the largest manufacturing sector in the EU in terms of turnover, value added and employment. It is the second leading manufacturing sector in terms of number of company. Germany, France, Italy, UK and Spain are the largest EU food and drink producers. Every year, the EU food and drink industry export products worth around €65.3 billion.
In developing countries, where agriculture dominates all other economic sectors, the majority of workers supporting the food and beverage industry cannot satisfy their immediate consumption needs and earn sufficient income to improve their lives. A handful of pioneering firms are breaking this dilemma and building economic opportunity around food and beverage value chains in ways that support future business growth.
1. Major food and beverage firms are concerned about maintaining access to quality ingredients. Global consumers are increasingly willing to pay premiums for safe, organic, and sustainable products. In this equation lies the opportunity for large companies to anticipate the needs of consumers, improve lives, and mitigate their environmental footprints.
2. Pioneering food and beverage firms are partnering with non-profits and public institutions to expand economic opportunities in developing countries at three levels: creating business models that involve the poor as entrepreneurs, suppliers, retailers, customers; building the poor's human and physical capital to enable them to participate in these models; and tackling institutional and policy barriers to enhance feasibility and impact.
3.These companies are applying five best practice ingredients in their interventions: collaborating across sectors to raise awareness of opportunities; leveraging “patient capital” funding when competitive returns are not immediately available; planning with economic and environmental sustainability in mind; balancing globally and locally focused approaches to economic opportunity creation; and designing for scale and replication to increase impact.
Global Market Size:
The global food and beverage retail industry has witnessed significant growth over the last five years and is expected to continue its growth momentum, reaching approximately US $5,776 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 5% over the next five years. Macroeconomic factors such as burgeoning GDP, increasing consumer spending and changing lifestyle, taste, and preferences are expected to drive the industry over the forecast period.
The roughly 4.5 billion low-income people in developing countries collectively spend more than $5 trillion a year. Indeed, the lower consumption segments spend more than the middle and higher consumption segments combined. They spend $2.3 trillion a year on food and beverages alone.
Berlin Largest City of Germany!
The food industry – including the tobacco industry – is one of Berlin's strongest industrial sectors in terms of turnover and number of employees. The food industry accounts for about 10% of all employment in the manufacturing sector. Berlin is focused on the production of coffee, confectionery and baked goods, fruit and vegetable processing, the beverage industry as well as on meat and tobacco processing.
The capital region's food industry benefits from the area’s high proportion of rural space and a very well developed agricultural sector. Nearly half of the land devoted to agriculture in the region is used to produce grain.Nationally and internationally known brands such as Coca-Cola, Schultheiss, Kühne, Storck, Stollwerck or Bahlsen already benefit from the ideal environment Berlin offers. A company like Fassbender & Rausch has become the largest chocolate producer in the world.

Projection: Growth of Food & Beverages Sector for Upcoming Years:
Meat consumption worldwide has doubled in the last 20 years, and it is expected to double again by 2050.
The global food and beverage industry is growing at 3.5% a year and is expected to be worth more than US$7 trillion by 2016.
Foods and beverages that offer validated health claims account for around US$25 billion of global sales, mainly in the key markets of Japan, the USA and Europe. Levels of food and drink waste by commercial and industrial businesses in the food sector were almost halved down 49%.
The food sector (excluding agriculture) is showing resilience to the economic downturn with an increase of 6.3%. There was a rise of 7.4% in food wholesaling, 4.7% in food manufacturing and 14.6% in non-residential catering. Food retailing changed little at 0.4%.
Longer term, the food sector (excluding agriculture) increased by 48% between while the whole economy increased by 61%. The food sector has less scope for growth as there is a limit to consumer intake capacity and therefore it relies largely on quality improvements.
The food and drink industry and all its sub-sectors have a good international trade position with all sectors demonstrating improvement over the past years, despite weakening labour productivity and value added. This development can largely be attributed to the global perception of the high quality of European products and increasing incomes driving higher consumer demand for food and drinks products in emerging countries. The conclusion of a series of free trade agreements with non-EU countries in the last years has also contributed to increased market opportunities.
With Government policy targeted at more primary production converting towards organic methods, it is expected that domestic production will continue to grow during the forthcoming years. Based on the documents reviewed and interviews with key players in the trade and sales sectors of organic products, it seems valid to conclude that it is more likely that the Netherlands, a major agricultural exporter, will also become a major exporter of organic vegetables, especially for temperate zone products (mostly vegetables) and greenhouses products (peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers).
