Consumption of cheese in Germany 2010-2018 Cheese consumption in Germany has remained relatively stable in recent years. In 2018, some two million tons of cheese were consumed. Per capita consumption, meanwhile, has increased significantly after the 1980s, but later also showed changing numbers. In 2018, the average German consumed just over 24 kilos of cheese.

German cheese

There are many types of cheese (and cheese products) found on the German market, catering to virtually every taste and preference. When breaking down per capita cheese consumption by type, semi-hard and semi-soft cheese were especially popular among German consumers, followed by cream cheese. In terms of production volume, Quark (fresh cheese made by warming soured milk) or the so-called Schichtkäse (several different layers of Quark added on top of each other) were produced the most, with Gouda and Edam rounding up the top three.

Feeling cheesy

Germany also imports cheese, with the import value rising after 2015. The European cheese market is a thriving one, with some 10 million tons of cheese consumed in all of the EU.
