Spain is the eighth largest exporter of canned food in the world. More than 43% of the production of canned fish is exported, which places the country fifth in canned fish in terms of value. Most of the sales are tuna products (83%).
Almost 90% of Spanish exports are within the EU, with the main markets being Italy, France and Portugal. Spanish exports outside the EU are limited but at higher prices compared with the tuna exported to neighbouring countries. In cases such as Switzerland, USA or Mexico, the product is positioned in an exclusive market at a premium-price.
