Portugal: Portuguese Fruit Sector Aims to Increase Investments Efficiency and Exports

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   PO2021-0017

Over the past five years, Portuguese fruit production has improved its efficiency and evolved into a dynamic and advanced agricultural sector. Portugal’s annual fruit production is currently estimated at 1.1 million tons -- mainly oranges, apples, and Rocha pears (but its market is still not self-sufficient for certain fruits). Since 2018, Portugal is attracting foreign investors in agriculture, particularly in the Alqueva region. Due to growth in demand, both domestically, and abroad, there is room for further development of the Portuguese fruit sector.
