Portugal: Exporter Guide
Link to report:
Portugal started 2021 with National Lockdown measures fighting to control its worst wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the pandemic-related challenges, in 2020, the total value of U.S. exports of agricultural and related products to Portugal rose 2.6 percent to $261 million and stayed well above the five-year average. Notable increases in U.S. sales of tree nuts, pet food, prepared foods, rice, and distilled spirits contributed to the rise. In 2020, lockdown measures and movement restrictions compelled Portuguese consumers to cook and dine at home. These changes in habits continue to position retail and eCommerce as the fastest growing outlets for food sales. This report provides guidance to U.S. companies interested in exporting food products to Portugal including an overview of the country's economic situation, market structure, and export requirements.
