Why Western European Shoppers and Retailers Happily Welcomed Contest Distribution

Hello to all FMCG product suppliers in WEU! Our team of packaged goods and confectionery distributors is glad to welcome the UK, the Republic of Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Monaco, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and France to our extended list of business destinations with high potential, based on the recent rise in the consumption of packaged lifestyle goods there. We hope to establish strong connections and expand our family of satisfied retailers even more. 

These countries have a rich FMCG consumption history and have already fully opened their markets to imported goods from the best-rated global manufacturers of household detergents, beverages, packaged foods, and candy. Working with them has always been a pleasure for Contest Distribution, and we are looking forward to adding more companies as our valued partners. Here are some curious facts about a few of these destinations: 
  • Belgium, for instance, is well-known for its delectable chocolates, Cote d’Or chocolate pralines, waffles, fries, and beer, of course. It even has its own “chocolate town” Brugge, located just an hour away from the capital.
  • The Dutch are great fans of FMCGs. There are about 40,000 consumer goods manufacturers in the provinces of Amsterdam and The Hague and almost 30,000 in Eindhoven. Despite that, the Netherlands remains one of the leading import destinations for international corporations producing packaged goods.
  • Italians are all about coffee. This is the place to live if you're looking for top espresso production companies with family traditions and uncompromised taste characteristics. Illy and Lavazza are just a few of the globally recognized brands that originated in Italy.
  • The people of France definitely have a sweet tooth but also enjoy a healthy, often gourmet lifestyle.
  • Wholesale suppliers of FMCG products find Portugal an undiscovered jewel. Lisbon, Porto, and Braga provinces have more than 50% of the market share in the entire Portuguese consumer goods industry, and the retailers there keep expanding the list of imported packaged goods.
  • With such a great annual flow of tourists in all major Spanish provinces, it comes as no surprise that the wholesale sweets and confectionery business in Spain is flourishing and is expected to keep growing further in 2023.
