Spain: Almond industry boosted by China export deal

Recently, a deal was finalized by Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez in Beijing. This involves 50,000 tons of Spanish almonds will be exported to China in 2025. This amount should double by 2032.

The almond sector is of the country's most successful industries and this expansion will be a boom for companies like Crisolar in Catalonia, an association representing over 24,000 almond growers.

"‌Spanish farmers have a nice opportunity to sell our almonds into the China market. The trees that have already been planted in the last 10 to 15 years, this is why we expect by 2032 or even 2035, Spain can reach even larger crops – maybe more than 200,000 tons."

Spain is the world's second-largest producer of almonds, behind the United States, accounting for around 10 percent of the global total output.
