Austria's food and beverage producers are established across the globe with their quality products. Export rates of up to 95% are not uncommon.

The Austrian food and agriculture industry is a testament to the fact that international success is also possible aside from large-scale companies. This segment of Austrian industry is mostly made up of small and medium enterprises, whose quality products are valued worldwide as shown by export rates of some companies of up to 95%.

The average export rates of Austrian food companies is 60%, with total annual turnover amounting to around EUR 8 billion. The recipe for success is the high quality of the products, innovative recipes and organically sourced ingredients – as guaranteed by stringent Austrian regulations. Austrian food laws happen to be among the toughest in the world.

A total of 20,000 farms are dedicated to organic produce. Products from Austria’s “gourmet range” are an established feature on the shelves of international retail chains, department stores and specialty shops. Austrian food and beverage manufactures have been established on international markets for years with their individuality and exceptional quality.
