Kokosblütenzucker – ein Nischenprodukt aus Indonesien

Das ambitionierte Start-up-Unternehmen KULAU GmbH in Berlin hat sich auf den Import von Produkten rund um die Kokosnuss spezialisiert. Der Name des Unternehmens ist Programm: „Kulau“ ist in der Kreolsprache Tok-Pisin in Papua-Neuguinea die Bezeichnung für „junge, grüne Kokosnuss“. Das Unternehmen setzt ausschließlich auf nachhaltige, natürlich hergestellte und fair gehandelte Bioprodukte. Bei der Auswahl der Lieferanten legt KULAU höchste Maßstäbe an. Nicht nur hinsichtlich der Produktqualität, auch im Hinblick auf gute Arbeitsbedingungen und umweltschonende Anbaumethoden auf den Plantagen stellt das deutsche Importunternehmen hohe Anforderungen an seine ausländischen Partner. Für das Unternehmen ist daher ein professionelles Sourcing sehr wichtig, um Beschaffungsmärkte für seine Produkte aus tropischen Ländern zu finden. Hier kam die Hilfe vom Import Promotion Desk (IPD) gerade recht. Das IPD vermittelte KULAU den geeigneten Partner und sparte dem Unternehmen damit viel Zeit und Geld.

Almonds in Germany

Consumption of almonds has been increasing consistently since 2010 as consumers value their health benefits. They are increasingly using them as a snack as well as in more traditional food ingredients, including marzipan,which is especially popular in Germany. Almonds are the second most frequently consumed nuts after peanuts. While the USA remains the leading supplier of almonds to Germany, reduction in supplies from other important sources such as Spain, is providing opportunities for smaller DC suppliers such as Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Iran.

Emerging Vegetable Oils in Europe (provided by CBI)

The drive for innovation in the European food industry leads companies to adopt new ingredients in order to remain competitive. The introduction of new vegetable oils (emerging oils), either as ingredients or as final consumer products, is a form of innovation, differentiation and marketing used by food companies to articulate their competitive edge. On the other side of the coin, exporters of emerging oils still face a number of challenges to access the European market successfully. Whereas the Novel Food Regulation imposes marketing restrictions on a number of innovative products, some barriers to suppliers are often related to issues such as supply sufficiency and stability. At the same time, emerging oils also provide opportunities in terms of niche marketing and value adding propositions.

Albeit a general decline in volume, Germany remains one of the leaders in per capita consumption of fruit juices in the world. Especially the categories chilled and „not from concentrate“ (NFC) are gaining market against the overall trend, with consecutive growth during the last 5 years. While apple juice stays in the number one spot, followed by orange and multi-flavors, only the flavor mixes show significant gains, nurtured by the ever-growing smoothie segment. This development sheds a light on tropical fruit pulps which provide the main differentiator for the final consumer in this type of products. Also due to changing weather patterns in the world, established importers are looking to broaden their supply base in order to safeguard their ability to supply all year round with competitive prices.

Walnut oil is a popular edible oil for a certain number of consumer types who like to cook, and who prefer the distinctive flavour of walnut. Although Germany produces its own walnut oil, it also needs to import to meet demand. This niche product will appeal to those DC exporters who can manufacture to a high quality and meet the market specifications. There are a number of specialist importers who would be interested in facilitating the supply of quality walnut oil from unfamiliar sources.

German walnut consumption has been increasing, as consumers appreciate the many health benefits that exist with this popular tree nut, although there is some evidence that higher prices are impacting on sales levels.

Global production is dominated by the USA and China but significant opportunities exist for importers who are able to supply the market with products of the quality demanded by the trade and consumers. There is some seasonality, particularly for the Christmas period, but demand is fairly consistent throughout the year.

Emerging Vegetable Oils in Europe (provided by CBI)

The drive for innovation in the European food industry leads companies to adopt new ingredients in order to remain competitive. The introduction of new vegetable oils (emerging oils), either as ingredients or as final consumer products, is a form of innovation, differentiation and marketing used by food companies to articulate their competitive edge. On the other side of the coin, exporters of emerging oils still face a number of challenges to access the European market successfully. Whereas the Novel Food Regulation imposes marketing restrictions on a number of innovative products, some barriers to suppliers are often related to issues such as supply sufficiency and stability. At the same time, emerging oils also provide opportunities in terms of niche marketing and value adding propositions.

Tropical Fruit Pulps in Germany

Albeit a general decline in volume, Germany remains one of the leaders in per capita consumption of fruit juices in the world. Especially the categories chilled and „not from concentrate“ (NFC) are gaining market against the overall trend, with consecutive growth during the last 5 years. While apple juice stays in the number one spot, followed by orange and multi-flavors, only the flavor mixes show significant gains, nurtured by the ever-growing smoothie segment. This development sheds a light on tropical fruit pulps which provide the main differentiator for the final consumer in this type of products. Also due to changing weather patterns in the world, established importers are looking to broaden their supply base in order to safeguard their ability to supply all year round with competitive prices.

The drive for innovation in the European food industry leads companies to adopt new ingredients in order to remain competitive. The introduction of new vegetable oils (emerging oils), either as ingredients or as final consumer products, is a form of innovation, differentiation and marketing used by food companies to articulate their competitive edge. On the other side of the coin, exporters of emerging oils still face a number of challenges to access the European market successfully. Whereas the Novel Food Regulation imposes marketing restrictions on a number of innovative products, some barriers to suppliers are often related to issues such as supply sufficiency and stability. At the same time, emerging oils also provide opportunities in terms of niche marketing and value adding propositions.

They are increasingly popular as a flavouring in confectionery and bakery products, particularly sweet pastries such as baklava. While Iran and the USA are the leading suppliers of pistachios to Germany, reduction in supplies from other important sources such as Syria and Afghanistan, is providing opportunities for smaller DC suppliers in Central Asia such as Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, who currently do not export to Germany directly.

Quinoa in Europe (provided by CBI)

The European market for quinoa seeds has grown rapidly in the past few years. The European Union (EU) imported more than twice as much quinoa in 2014 than in 2012. Quinoa in Europe has been mainly developed by the organic sector. It caught the attention of many food specialists and its popularity is a direct result of increasing consumer awareness of the need for healthier diets. The novelty of the quinoa trade is over, but it has left a permanent mark on the grain consumption pattern. Future opportunities in Europe will be driven by product development and increasing use of quinoa as an ingredient.

Tropical Fruit Pulps in Germany

Albeit a general decline in volume, Germany remains one of the leaders in per capita consumption of fruit juices in the world. Especially the categories chilled and „not from concentrate“ (NFC) are gaining market against the overall trend, with consecutive growth during the last 5 years. While apple juice stays in the number one spot, followed by orange and multi-flavors, only the flavor mixes show significant gains, nurtured by the ever-growing smoothie segment. This development sheds a light on tropical fruit pulps which provide the main differentiator for the final consumer in this type of products. Also due to changing weather patterns in the world, established importers are looking to broaden their supply base in order to safeguard their ability to supply all year round with competitive prices.

The drive for innovation in the European food industry leads companies to adopt new ingredients in order to remain competitive.

On the other side of the coin, exporters of emerging oils still face a number of challenges to access the European market successfully. Whereas the Novel Food Regulation imposes marketing restrictions on a number of innovative products, some barriers to suppliers are often related to issues such as supply sufficiency and stability. At the same time, emerging oils also provide opportunities in terms of niche marketing and value adding propositions.

Consumption of nutmeg in Germany is relatively high and stable. Nutmegs are almost entirely imported whole and not further processed. An interesting development in the imports is the shift from importing nutmeg through the Netherlands, to importing directly from Indonesia.

Olive Oil in Germany

Despite Germany’s low per capita consumption of olive oil in relation to Mediterranean countries, it is a very important and growing market for high-quality olive oils. At the same time that olive oil is increasingly incorporated into the cooking habits of German consumers, the focus on quality and traceability provides
opportunities to professional producers and exporters in developing countries. Currently, the role of developing countries in supplying olive oil directly to the German market is very limited, since the oil is usually blended in other European countries. Successful market access would require crucial efforts in meeting the market’s organoleptic1 profile and correct product placing & marketing.

Consumption of pistachios has been slowly increasing as consumers value their unique flavour and distinctive style of shelling while eating. They are increasingly popular as a flavouring in confectionery and bakery products, particularly sweet pastries such as baklava. While Iran and the USA are the leading suppliers of pistachios to Germany, reduction in supplies from other important sources such as Syria and Afghanistan, is providing opportunities for smaller DC suppliers in Central Asia such as Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, who currently do not export to Germany directly.

Tropical Fruit Pulps in Germany

Albeit a general decline in volume, Germany remains one of the leaders in per capita consumption of fruit juices in the world. Especially the categories chilled and „not from concentrate“ (NFC) are gaining market against the overall trend, with consecutive growth during the last 5 years. While apple juice stays in the number one spot, followed by orange and multi-flavors, only the flavor mixes show significant gains, nurtured by the ever-growing smoothie segment. This development sheds a light on tropical fruit pulps which provide the main differentiator for the final consumer in this type of products. Also due to changing weather patterns in the world, established importers are looking to broaden their supply base in order to safeguard their ability to supply all year round with competitive prices.

The drive for innovation in the European food industry leads companies to adopt new ingredients in order to remain competitive.

On the other side of the coin, exporters of emerging oils still face a number of challenges to access the European market successfully. Whereas the Novel Food Regulation imposes marketing restrictions on a number of innovative products, some barriers to suppliers are often related to issues such as supply sufficiency and stability. At the same time, emerging oils also provide opportunities in terms of niche marketing and value adding propositions.

Fresh Stone Fruit in Europe (provided by CBI)

The European import value of stone fruit from developing countries increased annually until 2013, but slowed down in 2014 due to the Russian embargo. Developing countries mainly supply Europe counter-seasonal in winter months, because Southern European countries produce lots of stone fruit. Special qualities or new varieties such as Paraquayos can be promising.

Gums and Resins

Germany is a leading importer of gums and resins in Europe. Gum arabic, Locust Bean Gum (LBG), frankincense and myrrh are valuable as natural ingredients with unique properties. Gum arabic and LBG stabilise and thicken, whereas frankincense and myrrh are mostly valued for their fragrance. They are versatile ingredients with a wide range of applications in the food, cosmetic and health products industries. As each of these applications requires very specific qualities of the gums, you need to pay extra attention to strict sorting and grading.

Hazelnuts in Germany

German hazelnut consumption has increased slightly during the last couple of years, although there is some evidence that higher prices are impacting on sales levels. This goes back to one night of frost in 2014, which eliminated 40% of the hazelnut harvest in Turkey.

Nutmeg in Germany

Consumption of nutmeg in Germany is relatively high and stable. Nutmegs are almost entirely imported whole and not further processed. An interesting development in the imports is the shift from importing nutmeg through the Netherlands, to importing directly from Indonesia.

Olive Oil in Germany

Despite Germany’s low per capita consumption of olive oil in relation to Mediterranean countries, it is a very important and growing market for high-quality olive oils. At the same time that olive oil is increasingly incorporated into the cooking habits of German consumers, the focus on quality and traceability provides
opportunities to professional producers and exporters in developing countries. Currently, the role of developing countries in supplying olive oil directly to the German market is very limited, since the oil is usually blended in other European countries. Successful market access would require crucial efforts in meeting the market’s organoleptic1 profile and correct product placing & marketing.

Pistachios in Germany

Consumption of pistachios has been slowly increasing as consumers value their unique flavour and distinctive style of shelling while eating. They are increasingly popular as a flavouring in confectionery and bakery products, particularly sweet pastries such as baklava. While Iran and the USA are the leading suppliers of pistachios to Germany, reduction in supplies from other important sources such as Syria and Afghanistan, is providing opportunities for smaller DC suppliers in Central Asia such as Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, who currently do not export to Germany directly.
