Companies in the fruit, vegetables and orchard sector

Catalonia is the main sweet fruit production area in Spain, and at the same time, it is the fourth largest world producer of pear, peach and nectarine, and the twentieth largest producer of apple.

More than 50 thousand hectares of land planted with fruit trees - 6% of the total useful farming land - produce over a million tons of fruits, mostly apple, pear, peach and nectarine. Thanks to an area full of diversity and a mild Mediterranean climate, Catalonia offers a great fruit variety with a unique peculiarity: farming is done under an integrated production system.

Finally, Catalonia is a great exporter of fruits. 25% all of fruits produced are exported to foreign markets. France, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, Russia and the Netherlands are among the main importers of apples and pears, as well as peaches and nectarines.
