THE MEAT SECTOR IN CATALONIA
The meat industry is the main agri-food sector in Catalonia, with turnover of €7 Bn. It represents 31% of turnover in the agri-food sector, 40% in employment and 18% in number of companies. This sector is increasingly focused on vertical integration as a way of ensuring traceability from farm to fork, in line with growing market demands. Every year Catalonia produces more than two million tonnes of meat of all species: pork, beef, mutton, goat, horse, poultry and rabbit.
Catalunya, best European region for the future*
The agri-food sector is the largest of the Catalan economy and one of the most dynamic export sectors. The volume and value of its exports are growing year after year.
Catalonia’s logistics network can serve 400 million consumers in under 48 hours, while its geostrategic location enables efficient intercontinental connections with Asia and America as well as optimum distribution to Europe and Africa.
