The Spanish food and drinks industry is a global power in various sectors and Alimentaria is its landmark trade show. The show attracts thousands of international buyers in search of high quality food and a wide variety of products.


Market Information

In 2021, Spain imported $54.2 billion worth of agricultural, fish and forest products, up 21 percent compared to 2020. As Spain remains one of the fastest growing economies in the Eurozone, the retail sector continues to consolidate its position and importance in the country. Spain has one of the most competitive food processing industries in Europe, which makes this sector an important target for U.S. food ingredient exporters. USDA
