The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food has published the agrifood sector's Foreign Trade Annual Report 2017, that shows that the agrifood sector exports reached €50,039 million in 20017, with a rise by 6.8% with respect to 2016.

The agrifood sector exports have grown by 80% in the last 10 years, and in this same period, the balance almost multiplied by 10.

Destinations of the exports

The UE-28 still was the main destination for the Spanish agrifood and fishing sectors exports, with a share of 73%.

The first commercial partner was France, with 22% of the exports and 27% of the imports shares. This is due to the geographical proximity, the historical relationships and the importance of both countries' agrifood sectors. The most exported products were citrus fruits, pork, fresh vegetables (such as peppers, aubergines, asparagus, among others) and olive oil.

Regarding third countries, the exports to the USA reached €1,999 million, this entailing 9.3% more than in 2016. Currently, the second non-EU market is China, that represents 11% of the agrifood sector products sales to non-EU countries.

In 2017, meat exports followed their upward trend, with a rise by 9,3%, that occasionally matches the increase in imports (9.3%), in a scenario dominated by pork, that represents more than 63% of the exported meats.
