In FY 2013, Spain imported $1.88 billion of agricultural, fish, and forest products from the United States, up 74 percent compared to the previous year and the highest import figure on record.

As the consolidation and maturity of the retail food industry continues, medium and long-term opportunities continue to arise for U.S. exporters.
