Spanish imports of fruits and vegetables have grown by 64% in the last decade



The Spanish import of fresh fruits and vegetables has registered strong growth in the last decade. Specifically, it has gone from 2.5 million tons to 4.1 million tons, 64% more.

This increase has occurred both in the purchase of products from outside Europe, with 110% more, totalling 2.13 million tons, and that from European countries, which grew by 33% to reach 1.98 million of tons.

According to the analysis of Spanish imports of fruits and vegetables in the last ten years, carried out by Fepex based on data from the Department of Customs and Excise, growth has been continued each year.

In the case of non-EU imports, it has gone from 1.01 million tons in 2014 to 2.13 million tons in 2023, while imports from Europe, focused mainly on EU countries, have gone from 1.48 million tons to 1.98 million tons.

The data show, according to Fepex, a notable dynamism in the Spanish import market, in most fruits and vegetables, with particular concern about the growth in products with deep roots in the Spanish sector, such as tomatoes, whose imports grew by 28%. in the last decade, going from 148,624 tons in 2013 to 189,074 tons in 2023.
