Food Industry: Delicious and Profitable
Dresden brings in half of the Saxon food industry's total turnover. The city houses more than 24 production companies with roughly 1,000 staff in the food and luxury foods sectors.
No wonder, as Dresden is especially well-known for its love of all life's little pleasures.
There is a wide spectrum of products including dairy and milk products, drinks, tobacco products, baked goods and patisseries, delicatessen foods, fruit and vegetables, and products and luxury goods made using these ingredients.
The people of Dresden are also highly imaginative when it comes to presenting and marketing their products. Local businesses such as Pfund's Dairy or the Schloss Wackerbarth winery have made a name for themselves throughout Germany and are a firm fixture on tourist programs.
Dresden Stollen, like French champagne or Parma ham, has EU protected designation of origin status.
Dresden is home to what the Guinness Book of Records lists as the loveliest dairy in the world. Pfund's Dairy sells all kinds of milk products in splendid surroundings.
Schloss Wackerbarth not only produces top tipples but also turns wine into an adventure.
