Vegetable exports grew by 9.2% and totaled 6,465 million euros. Fruits exports increased by 6.3% but their value stood at 9,134 million euros.

The European Union is the main destination for Spanish exports, accounting for 81% of all fruit exports and 78% of vegetable exports. Germany, France, and the United Kingdom are the main destinations.

Meanwhile, the value of fruit and vegetable imports increased by 6.8% to 3,123 million euros. Morocco concentrated 19% of the total value of the fruit imported by Spain and 47% of vegetable imports.
