The Belgian market
Belgium is known for its rich and diverse culinary traditions, and when it comes to cookies, there are a few types that are particularly popular in the country such as wafers, sandwich biscuits, chocolate chip cookies and breakfast biscuits.
The total Belgian consumption of sweet biscuits is 60,000 tons per year and more than 5,000 tons per year for bread replacements.
Today, we are working with all major retailers in Belgium, such as Colruyt and Delhaize. We produce a large range of products for them, especially addressing the biggest segments of the market (waffles, sandwiches, cookies and breakfast biscuits).
