Spain: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Similar to other countries in the region, Spain is ending 2020 fighting to control the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Spanish economy is still uncertain. However, the latest predictions released by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development estimated that in 2020, the Spanish economy will shrink 11.6 percent. Lockdown measures and movement restrictions increased cooking and dinning at home. This created opportunities for frozen seafood, condiments and sauces, and high-end products traditionally consumed dinning out. In 2020, changing consumption habits throughout the pandemic continue to position retail, eCommerce and regional supermarkets as the fastest growing food sales channels. This report provides guidance to U.S. companies interested in exporting food products to Spain including an overview of the country's economic situation, market structure, and export requirements.
