Mango consumption in Spain increases by 277% in 5 years

Although Spain's mango production is still small, both the volume and sales of this product are increasing annually. In 2018, Spain was the fruit's third largest European importer (accounting for 10% of all imports), only behind the United Kingdom (where mangoes are widely consumed by the Asian population), and the Netherlands, which is traditionally an importer of all kinds of fruit and vegetables. Also, Spain is the second largest trader and the largest mango grower in the EU, and consumption has almost tripled in the last five years. ASAJA Málaga reported this, based on data from INTRASTAT.

Europe's biggest mango suppliers are Brazil (36.4%), Peru (27.3%) and Cote d'Ivoire (8.67%). In Spain's case, Brazil is also the largest supplier (59.8%), followed by Peru (25.8%), Mexico (3.82%), Cote d'Ivoire (3.13%) and Senegal (3.08%).

Within the EU, Spain is the second largest supplier of mangoes, accounting for 17.3% of the total.

Over the last five years, the consumption of mangoes has grown explosively in Spain; by 277%, in fact. The figures for 2018 almost triple those of 2014. While consumption in 2014 was still 0.21 kg per inhabitant per year, in 2018 this was 0.58 kg per inhabitant per year.
