A beer, a cup of coffee and some fish fingers – that might not be a very balanced meal, but it was made exclusively in Bremen and Bremerhaven.
Below, we take a look at some famous brand-name products that are made in Bremen. Our search is based on two criteria: the products are known outside of Bremen and anyone can buy them.
Eight products from Bremen:
Beck’s is known around the world. The brewery on the Weser river, now part of the international AB-Inbev Group, has been making beer in the familiar green bottle since 1873. It is fitting that the tall ship Alexander von Humboldt is berthed in Bremen, as the ship with the green sails was a key element of Beck’s advertising for years, along with the song ‘Sail away’ by Joe Cocker.
The Mercedes plant in Bremen is the largest employer in the state of Bremen and manufactures eleven models, including the Group’s first full-production electric car. Eight out of ten Mercedes are made in Bremen!

The most popular fish dish of children around the world is produced in Bremerhaven, Europe’s frozen food capital. Frozen Fish International – part of Iglo – makes around 1.9 billion fish fingers every year in one of the world’s largest frozen fish factories.
