German food exports to China rose almost 47 percent in the first half of this year, the Federal Association of German Food and Drink Industries (BVE) said on Monday, despite a slowdown in Chinese economic growth.

The surge in food sales contrasted with a less than 1 percent rise in Germany's total exports to China in January to June - the same as to crisis-burdened Greece - according to figures from the DIHK chambers of commerce.

Strong demand for German food exports is as much due to Chinese consumers' widespread suspicion of domestic food products as a growing demand for German goods, said trade agency Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI).

German dairy products are in especially high demand, said GTAI's representative in Beijing, Stefanie Schmitt: "People don't trust Chinese dairy products after so many food scandals in the past few years."
