    Fruit juice industry in Germany is World Champion 

    Nowhere in the world are there so many juice manufacturers as in Germany. Every second fruit company of the European Union (EU), in total 375 companies, has its headquarters in this country. And the fruit juice consumption in Germany is, despite a slight decrease, the highest in the world. The consumption per capita currently is 32 litres of fruit juice, fruit nectar and vegetable juice. 'Germany is one of the largest markets, as well as volume as sales of fruit juice, in the world. The industry had a total revenue of 3.59 billion Euro in 2014, that is 5% more than the previous year,' said Klaus-Jürgen Philipp, the President of the Association of the German Fruit Juice Industry (VDF), at this year's members meeting in Lüneburg.

    Despite these encouraging figures, the overall situation of the industry is characterized by high costs, and a decline in fruit juice consumption. Positive developments in recent years are the concentrate juices, cooled juices and regional products. These offer new sales opportunities for the manufacturers. One important issue for the coming years and one the industry is very dedicated to according to Philip, is sustainability. Sustainability combined with a secure supply, is a challenge, which necessitates close cooperation of all parties in many countries.
