The value of Portuguese exports increased by 105%

According to Portugal Fresh (Associação para a Promoção de Frutas, Legumes e Flores de Portugal) national exports of fruit and vegetables increased by 105% between 2010 and 2019.
Portugal Fresh estimates for 2019 that national exports are expected to exceed €1.6 billion (€1.5 billion in 2018). That is to say a growth of 105% compared to 2010, a year when there was still no common promotion strategy and where sales on foreign markets amounted to €780 million.
Portugal Fresh took its first steps in the international promotion strategy at Fruit Logistica in Berlin in February 2011.
As in 2010, Spain remains the main customer (€447 million in 2019), followed by France (€190 million), the Netherlands (€142 million) the United Kingdom (€133 million) Germany (€105 million) Belgium (€73 million), Poland (€61 million), Italy (€50 million) Brazil (€43 million).
