In 2020, there were 7,400 companies producing food in the Netherlands. Over half of these companies were bakeries and patisseries, at just over 3,700. By comparison, there were 180 fish processors active in the Netherlands, and five companies processed margarine. In 2018, the total turnover of the food industry amounted to roughly 70.9 billion euros.

 Turnover per branch 

  Although more than half of the food manufacturers were active in bread and pastry processing, this was not the food industry with the highest turnover. The turnover of these enterprises amounted to roughly 5.2 billion euros that year, whereas industries like dairy processing and meat processing had a turnover that was more than twice as high. In 2018, the most valuable food sector in terms of revenue was the dairy processing industry with a turnover of nearly 13.5 billion euros.
