In 2019, the Netherlands exported 1.3 billion euros in sweets. This concerns 400 million kilograms of sweets. 80% of the candy exports go to EU countries. Almost two of them consist of chocolate. Germany and the United Kingdom, in particular, are major buyers of chocolate, but also France and Belgium. Almost all the candy that the Netherlands imports comes from the EU, especially from Germany, Belgium, and the United Kingdom. Chocolate is also the most popular when imported.

In 2019, the Netherlands produced 1.3 billion euros in sweets. For the past ten years, the Netherlands has been the largest manufacturer of licorice in the EU. Drop production has increased by a quarter in ten years. With a production value of 90 million euros, the Netherlands accounts for around one-third of the EU’s production of licorice and licorice extract. Spain and Germany are Europe’s second and third manufacturer respectively.

Consumption of candy is stable

In 2019, more than 11.5 kilograms per person were eaten in the Netherlands. Almost 2 kilograms of this was licorice. More than half was chocolate. This makes chocolate the most loved candy in the Netherlands. The consumption of candy has remained unchanged in the past ten years. Children eat more sugar and sweets (34 g / day) than adults (29 g / day). The consumption of sugar and sweets is highest at the age of 4-18, after which consumption decreases.Normal/underweight adults eat more sugar and sweets (35 g / day) than overweight/obese adults (25 g / day). Children with normal/underweight also eat more sugar and sweets (36 g / day) than children with overweight/obesity (28 g / day). In strong urban areas, almost as much sugar and sweets are eaten as in non-urban areas.
