Volkswagen named its most popular product for 2019. To the surprise of many, it was not a car, but a branded sausage, which the German company has been producing for almost half a century.

As it became known, last year Volkswagen produced a total of 6.2 million cars, while the volume of sausages was 6.8 million. Moreover, if VW produces its machines in 50 plants scattered around the world, then sausages – in only one enterprise – sausage factory located in the hometown of VW Wolfbsurg.

about Volkswagen sausages in Germany, and in general in Europe, they are in great demand and many people like it. These are traditional German curry sausages, which the German auto giant has been producing since 1973 (although VW itself began to make sausages in the 1930s, but it was branded sausages that appeared only a few decades later). Initially, they were produced only for factory workers, but later they began to be sold on the domestic market, and even later – abroad. Over the past years, VW sausages have become such an integral part of the car company that they even got their number in the spare parts catalog –199 398 500 A.

By the way, Volkswagen is not the only automaker that produces food. For example, the companies Bentley and Porsche organized their apiaries, thanks to which they produce and sell honey. True, this business they appeared relatively recently – in 2019 and 2017, respectively. In the first year, Benytley sold just 40 jars of honey, but Porsche managed to sell a lot more – 400 kg of bee nectar.
