The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food has highlighted that Spain has become the world’s leading supplier of pork for the Chinese market. During 2020, the value of total Spanish exports to that market grew by 77%, and the ministry warns that this push came mainly from the meat sector in general and the pig sector in particular.
According to data from Chinese customs, last year imports into China of Spanish agri-food products amounted to 4,121.7 million US dollars, 3,613.8 million euros, which represents an increase of 81% in dollars.
It should be noted that 2019 was already a record year for Spanish exports to China, which has been surpassed by 2020 as a consequence mainly of the increase in exports of the main product, meat and pork offal, whose value amounted to 3,286.2 million dollars.
