The food sector is flourishing in Belgium thanks to export

“Belgian food companies are exporting more and more products abroad. But fewer and fewer Belgian food products are sold in our own country. This is evident from the annual figures of Fevia, the umbrella organization of Belgian food companies. Due to taxes, levies and high labor costs, food products are expensive in our country, which means that Belgians more often cross the border to shop. ”

Colac is displayed in the Belgian media as an example company in the food sector that grows a lot and exports a lot.

Export is important to COLAC.

Colac built a new production facility in 2017 that was built for growth. Colac generates a large part of its turnover through exports and hopes to continue to grow in the coming years.
