About us

German Sweets is the export association of the German confectionery industry and was founded in 1977 in the Hanseatic City of Hamburg. As a committed partner, German Sweets supports its member companies in all matters relating to export and sales promotion in international markets.

For over 40 years German Sweets has worked in close cooperation with the Association of the German Confectionary Industry BDSI. In addition, German Sweets is also a member of the Export Association for Food and Agriproducts GEFA and is therefore in close contact with all export sectors of the German agricultural and food industry.
