25% of shipments destined to Germany

Based on the export data of recent months, the Spanish producers' association AEOFRUSE estimates that exports ranged at 51,688 mt between August and December, of which around 44,500 mt were shipped to other EU member states. At 52,642 mt, exports ranged nominally higher in the same period in 2019. Nearly 25% of all shipments observed this season were destined to Germany (12,300 mt), around 20% to France (11,118 mt) and around 20% to Italy (10,310 mt). Shipments to the UK have risen by 14% to 3,386 mt in this period.
