German enterprises in this industry are predominantly medium-sized manufacturers. The companies are predominantly family-owned or owner-managed and approximately 76% of these companies have fewer than 100 employees. To a great extent this makes them flexible so that they can quickly adjust to constantly changing consumer requirements with creative products. As a result, apparently consumers throughout the world find good reason to demand these products at an ever-increasing rate. According to surveys, products "Made in Germany" are considered to be of a high-quality, strictly monitored; they are considered to be natural and pure, as well as safe. For example, the QS quality scheme for food is an inspection scheme for food from farm to shop that is unique in Europe: since it was founded in 2001, it has been a byword for thorough inspections, reliable traceability and clear labelling of meat, meat products, fruit and vegetables consumers can trust in.
