Exporting sesame oil to Germany
Germany is the largest food market in Europe and one of the largest markets for sesame oil, together with the UK and France. The largest developing country (DC) supplier to Germany is Mexico, while China and Thailand also play a more limited role. Germany offers an interesting proposition to exporters of organic sesame oil. Not only is Germany the largest organic market in Europe, but several German refiners / vegetable oil companies have incorporated organic sesame oil in their portfolios. In addition, ‘oils & fats’ was one of the fastest growing categories within the organic market in recent years.
