In Fiscal Year (FY) 2014, Spain imported $2.2 billion of agricultural, fish and forest products from the United States, up 19 percent compared to the previous year and the highest import figure on record. Spain is expected to end 2014 with a modest growth with some positive sectors such as Foreign Direct Investment, exports and tourism. The retail food sector is adapting to the new trends of the consumer’s shopping habits.
