Spain: Horticultural exports outside Europe grew by 1% up to November
The United Arab Emirates purchased the most fruit and vegetables in Asia, with 56.1 million Euro up to November; 6% less than in the same months of 2016. In terms of volume, sales amounted to 54,937 tonnes (-4%). Saudi Arabia follows with 52.2 million Euro (+17%) and 51,171 tonnes (+22%). Still in Asia, but far behind these two countries, China also stands out, with 21.6 million Euro (+49%) and 18,536 tonnes (+45%).
In the Americas, Brazil is the leading market for Spanish fruit and vegetables, with 88.6 million Euro and 89,113 tonnes during the period at hand, recording a notable 15% drop in terms of value and 6% in terms of volume. It is followed by the United States, where 37,292 tonnes (+13%) of fruit and vegetables were shipped worth 58 million Euro (+7%). The third place is for Canada, with 49,026 tonnes (+32%) worth 57 million Euro (+17%).
In Africa, Morocco stands out the most, with 74,541 tonnes of fruit and vegetables shipped (+17%) worth 56.4 million Euro (+24%), according to data from the Department of Customs and Special Taxes of the Tax Agency.
For FEPEX, the diversification of markets is a difficult and long-term challenge. They depend, on the one hand, on a serious, coordinated and costly commitment on the part of the exporting producers, but above all, on external factors on which it is very difficult to have an influence, such as the commercial policies or priorities set by the European Commission.
