Onubafruit, the first producer of berries in Spain although it reduces its volume by 11%

The Huelva cooperative continues to lead the national ranking although its production decreases from 90.000 to 80.000 tons. The following places on the podium are also maintained: Fresón de Palos, second with 65.000 tons (-9,7%); and Arofa, third with 56.000, the same figure as last year.

Decrease in the cultivated area due to the lower availability of water and, therefore, lower production and a drop in profitability. These are some of the keys to the current situation of the berry sector in Spain, which is going through a delicate situation affected by the effects of climate change and the increase in production prices.

This decrease in the general production of the berry sector in Spain is also extrapolated to the figures of our Top 15 berries that we produce in the MARKETS Magazine based on the data provided by the companies themselves. In this way, a decrease of 4,2% is observed in the combined volume of the top fifteen Spanish berry producers.
