Market share of non-European bananas almost at 6%

Spain's banana imports up by 32%

In 2014, Spanish consumers had access to some 498,000 tonnes of bananas, 56,100 more than in the previous year. While the Canary Islands shipped 15,300 tonnes more than in 2013, the import of bananas from other origins has increased by 63,700 tonnes, which is a 32% increase. It is worth noting that in 2013 the import of non-European bananas reached 196,794 tonnes.

Non-European bananas thus managed to take a market share of between 5 and 8% in Spain, while also registering a 39% increase in value.

The main suppliers were Costa Rica, with 61,203 tonnes; Colombia, with 53,526 tonnes, and Ivory Coast, with 38,345 tonnes. Meanwhile, Ivory Coast, with 37.6 million Euro, and Colombia, with 27.1 million Euro, were the main suppliers in terms of value.

The only way to market such a volume has been to increase re-exports by 22,900 tonnes, with them going almost entirely to the Portuguese market (92% of the total).
