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 highest import figure on record. Spain continues to offer opportunities for U.S. food ingredient suppliers, and market niches exist for consumer-ready food products. In Spain, food processing sector generates 14 percent of Spain’s total industrial production. U.S. ingredient exporters not currently in the Spanish market may find trade opportunities by visiting the major food show in the country, Alimentaria on March 31-April 3 2014 in Barcelona, Spain.
