SPANISH Exports of Bottled Olive Oil to U.S. Drop 80 Percent | CIHEAM Press Review |

The news comes as Spain’s Food Information and Control Agency announced that production would be about 200,000 tons lower than initially estimated

Spanish bottled olive oil exports to the United States decreased by 80 percent in 2020 compared to 2019, according to Spain’s main agricultural cooperative, Cooperativas Agro-alimentarias.

Tariffs imposed in October 2019 by the Trump administration are blamed for the fall, which damaged the Spanish olive oil sector dramatically.
