The Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Sri Lanka (AHK Sri Lanka), in collaboration with the German Agency of International Development Cooperation (GIZ), has conducted a seminar to raise awareness among potential exporters and industry representatives to increase exports of organic products to the EU.
The event was held in the presence of Andreas Hergenroether, Chief Delegate – Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Sri Lanka. Hergenröether said the EU is by far the fastest-growing organic market worldwide. “We are convinced that Sri Lankan organic exporters could become strategic suppliers.”
The global market for organic food reached € 106 billion in 2019. Retail sales in the EU were valued at € 41.4 billion. As the largest organic retail sales market in the EU, Germany accounted for € 11,970 million in 2019. Major Sri Lankan organic products exported to the EU include tropical fruits such as papaya, pineapple, banana, and vegetables such as potato, carrots, leeks and legumes.
