Sales to Africa by Spanish producers rose by 22.77 per cent from January to June this year - in Morocco growth was 38.65 per cent. And as they seek business further and further afield sales to Saharan Africa increased by 24.22 per cent in the first half of 2013.

Significant export increases were seen in a number of non-EU countries such as South Africa (+64.2 per cent), Algeria (+31 per cent), Brazil (+40.4 per cent), China (+13.4 per cent), Morocco (+ 10.2 per cent) and the USA (+5.4 per cent).
