Spanish meat exports for April are taking a dive

Spain has exported less meat last month, according to official data reported by MAPA. While pig meat was already on a descendant trend for almost a year, due to reduced demand from China, beef and poultry have seen a dive in export volumes also. In total, meat volumes exported by Spain last month have dropped by 27%. The largest decline was seen in beef (-38%), followed by pork (-29%) and poultry (-25%). At the same time, goat and sheep meat exports from Spain have increased by 21%. In the accumulated figure for the year (from January to April), Spanish exports to third countries reached 616,330 tonnes, a decrease of 29% compared to the same period of the previous year.
China, followed by the Philippines, Japan, South Korea and the UK were the top destinations for Spanish meat exports last month.
