Canada, first non-European destination for Spanish fruit and vegetables

Canada was the leading non-European destination for Spanish fruit and vegetables in January and February 2019, with exports that amounted to 16,587 tons and 18.7 million euro, according to the latest updated data from the General Directorate of Customs, processed by FEPEX.

In 2018 Canada was also the first non-European destination for Spanish fruit and vegetables. That year exports to this destination totaled 93.4 million euro, a 36% increase over 2017 driven by the Global Economic and Trade Agreement between the EU and Canada, which came into force provisionally on September 21, 2017 and eliminated, as of that date, the duties applied to 98% of the products that the EU exchanges with Canada, including fruit and vegetables.
