Spain, located in southwestern Europe, is an important attraction in the world with its population of nearly 50 million people, especially with its world-renowned football clubs and places to visit. In the country with a developed economy, the vast majority of the people live in cities, which means that a healthy eating lifestyle is common.
Spain, with its food culture and lifestyle, has a high avocado consumption per capita compared to its population among European states. In the country where the young population is predominant, avocado consumption increases every year. Despite these good developments, Spain cannot produce avocados due to its climate and geographical structure. As a result, the avocados demanded by the domestic market are imported from outside.
Spain Avocado Imports
Spain has been influenced by a wide variety of cultures in terms of taste, and nowadays, avocado consumption, which has increased all over the world by taking part in the healthy eating trend, has also shown itself in Spain, and today, avocado recipes in healthy nutrition diet lists are highly preferred by both locals and tourists coming to the country. If we want to support these words with data, when we look at world trade data, avocado imports for 2021 amounted to just over 214 thousand tons. When we look at the 10-year graphs, avocado imports, which were approximately 30 thousand tons in 2012, have increased by 7 cards in the intervening 10 years, which is a remarkable increase rate among all countries in the world.
The fact that Spain’s consumption has doubled in the last two years compared to the previous year means that there will be much more consumption in the future of avocados. However, due to the lack of avocado production in Spain, this deficit is met by importing avocados from abroad. In this regard, Peru has a large share of the avocado market in Spain. It is followed by countries such as Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Morocco and the Netherlands. As an alternative to these countries, Kenya draws attention with its increasing avocado production all over the world. Kenyan avocado producers, who produce the highest quality avocados at the most affordable costs, can easily meet large avocado demands.
The last point we need to mention about importing avocados to Spain is the transportation of fresh avocados. In Spain, avocados usually arrive via Madrid Airport and safely preserve their freshness until the date of shipment in the cold storage rooms located in the cargo terminal. Another alternative is maritime transportation, where cold chain containers from large container ships arriving at the port of Valencia are safely kept in electrically connected stations until the date of shipment.
