Spain: Market suffers from massive production abroad

With great quantities of produce coming in from China and the US, garlic production in the Córdobes region is suffering. 87% of beans consumed in Spain come from Mexico. Most of the country’s asparagus is not from Andalucía, Navarra or Aranjuez, but from far-away places like China. Even Spanish dishes like Piquillo peppers and artichokes stem from Peru.

Spanish growers are now voicing their indignation. Our cattle, they say, are fed by grains we’re not allowed to grow, but that is shipped in from abroad in enormous quantities. This massive influx of foreign produce has a huge impact in domestic agriculture. No garlic, beans, asparagus and artichokes are being tilled anymore. Almeria tomato growers can no longer compete with cheap Moroccan produce and Andalusia cattle farmers cannot sustain themselves, growers warn.
