In 2011 food and beverages from Austria recorded their second largest export increase since 1995 – proof that they have become a permanent feature in the world's pantries.

The volumen of all Austrian agricultural exports rose by more than 16 % in terms of value in 2011. The average value of the exports reached record levels. Export quantity rose by 4% to 8.1 million tonnes.

Austrian food is particularly popular in Germany, the recipient of around one third of exports (2011: +11.4%) followed by  Italy, Hungary, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Finally an interesting global fact: South Korea is Austria's second largest export market for pork.
