Number of companies in the food manufacturing industry Netherlands 2019, by sector In 2018, there were close to 7,000 companies producing food in the Netherlands. Over half of these companies were bakeries and patisseries, at just over 3,700. By comparison, there were 175 fish processors active in the Netherlands, and five companies processed butter. In 2017, the total turnover of the food industry amounted to roughly 71.2 billion euros.

  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 5.1 billion euros that year, whereas industries like dairy processing and meat processing had a turnover that was twice or twice as high. In 2017, the most valuable food sector in terms of revenue was the dairy processing industry with a turnover of nearly 14.4 billion euros.
