In the locality of Moabit, Berlin the wholesaler from Munich wants be a significant competitor. In contrast to the traditional wholesale markets Hamberger wants to offer his customers all products under one roof. The entire surface is the size of two football fields. Hamburger offers his customers fresh produce on 5,000 m². The vegetable counter will be 40 meters long.

Increased demand
The booming tourism industry in Berlin leads to a higher demand for fresh food and increased competition on the market. Every year millions of tourists come to Berlin and together with the 3.5 million inhabitants of the city they need to be supplied by the 17 main food companies of the city.

For 120 years now, the traditional Berlin wholesale market has supplied the stores, markets and restaurants in Berlin. About 300 companies are located at the market. They handle around 580,000 metric tons annually, of which 1/3 are fresh fruits and vegetables. An advantage of the Berlin wholesale market could be the continued specialization of the traders.

The new Hamberger wholesale market sells exclusively to commercial trade customers, just as the traditional market. Ultimate customers can’t shop at the market.
