The Agrifood Sector as a Spearhead of the Spanish Economy
The Spanish agrifood sector has a major impact on the country’s economy, mainly in terms of employment, revenue and exports. Due to varying climate conditions, Spain has a diversified, regional production and a keen eye for innovative changes. This coupled with a high interest in R&D and a considerable research potential, makes Spain a clear recipient of EIT-Food projects.
Room for Improvement
With a lack of effective cooperation among scientists, government and businesses, EIT Food can be the crucial link that strengthens these necessary bonds among Spanish actors. Furthermore, due to an agrifood industry with a very fragmented structure and fraught with small producers, it is essential to facilitate constant innovation to foster internationalization and competitiveness.
With a diverse regional cuisine and a good climate, Spain benefits from a wide range of ingredients, which makes Spanish culinary traditions well-known around the globe.
