In Germany, almost one kilogram of honey is consumed per capita every year. However, most of the sweet stuff has to be imported from abroad.

Every inhabitant in Germany consumed around one kilogram of honey in 2020. This is shown by the Statista graphic based on estimates by the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE). Consumption has thus increased by around 100 grams compared to the previous year. In part, this is due to the higher numbers and productivity of bee colonies in this country.

Ukraine is Germany’s largest supplier

However, most of the honey used in Germany is imported from abroad. The most important suppliers are Ukraine (15,465 tons), Mexico (13,530 tons) and Argentina (12,747 tons). German beekeepers produced a total of around 29,500 tons of the sweet substance last year. Of course, this is far from enough to cover a requirement of one kilo per inhabitant.
