Welcome

Hungary is one of the leading producers of bell peppers and one of EIT Food’s RIS countries

The Agri-food Sector as a Spearhead of the Hungarian Economy

The agriculture industry plays a strategic role in the Hungarian economy. Advantageous natural features constitute a basis for both crop production and animal rearing. The majority of export products constitute grains, meats and meat products, vegetables and fruits, animal feed, animal fats, vegetable oils and waxes. Hungary is also characterised by a well-developed higher education and research system.

Room for Improvement

One of the biggest challenges for the Hungarian R&D sector is the lack of investments. In 2015, Hungary spent less than 1.5% of its GDP on scientific research. Other weak points in the Hungarian R&D sector are: low rate of R&D expenditures in the public sector and relatively low index of venture capital expenditures; few patent applications, also in the agrifood sector. It is essential to facilitate constant innovation to foster internationalization and competitiveness.

The traditional Hungarian cuisine is the result of centuries of Turkish, Germanic and Slavic influences.

Hungary is a tomato paradise - literally. The Hungarian word "paradicsom" stands for both ‘paradise’ and ‘tomato’.
