Strawberries and blueberries regain momentum in Huelva

The soft fruit sector in the Spanish province of Huelva, the most powerful in Europe by far, has seen the end of a campaign that has seen a rising production (almost an 8% increase) and has generated more income than in the turbulent previous year.

This year, in addition, the extraordinary situation experienced in 2020 with the Moroccan workforce has not occurred, when, due to the closure of borders due to the health crisis, thousands of temporary workers from North Africa were 'trapped' in the province.

The sector has culminated the 2020-2021 campaign with a total strawberry production of 349.232 tons, which represents a 33,7% increase compared to the previous campaign. Turnover, for its part, also experienced a similar growth compared to that invoiced in the previous season, according to statistical data provided by the associated companies, and with prices above the fiscal year reviewed.
