Sweet potatoes gaining ground in Germany
This growing popularity is in line with the preferences of consumers, since three quarters of them in Germany say they would like to try different varieties of fruits/vegetables, according to a study conducted by the market intelligence agency Mintel.
Sweet potatoes are becoming increasingly popular not only in Germany, but across Europe. Although the market for sweet potatoes is still relatively small, imports and consumption are growing rapidly.
The growing preference for the tuber can be attributed to several factors, such as its good taste, high versatility and, in particular, to their well-balanced nutritional composition.
In addition to its health benefits, the demand for sweet potatoes relies on the behaviour of European consumers, who are seeking variety.
As consumers become more aware of healthy nutrition habits and pay more attention to the quality of their diet, the popularity of sweet potatoes is expected to continue rising.
