The production of domestic legumes can constitute a more sustainable protein source in feeding troughs and food plates in European countries. However, it remains a challenge to realize legumes’ potential in research and practice. In this work, Germany serves as an example to describe one of the major legume markets in Europe. A mixed methodological approach based on quantitative and qualitative analyses was employed in this study. Quantitative data of the analysed parameters production, domestic consumption, imports and exports were obtained from international (Eurostat and FAO) and national (Destatis, AMI, BLE and OVID) databases. Expert interviews were conducted in order to qualify the data obtained and to validate the description of the market structure of grain legumes in Germany.
