Spanish olive oil exports to China soar in past 20 years

China is Spain's largest trading partner outside the European Union. Among all the imports from Spain, imports of olive oil have seen rapid growth in recent years – 400 times bigger now than 20 years ago, data from an industry organization showed. In an interview with CGTN, Teresa Pérez, general manager of the Spanish Olive Oil Interprofessional, said that China imported over 49,000 tonnes of olive oil from Spain in 2022, a 6-percent increase in volume. Total value increased by around 22 percent last year due to higher prices.
