AGROFOOD SECTOR

The agrofood sector is the main exporter to Europe, representing 32.5% of employment and 28.3% of production in the region. Murcia is the Spanish region with the highest percentage of land devoted to organic farming and leads the production of 4th- and 5th-range food products.

With only 2.2% of the country’s territory, Murcia accounts for 20% of Spain’s fruit and vegetable exports. Murcia, with excellent conditions for vineyard cultivation and wine-making processes, has three Appellations:Bullas, Jumilla and Yecla.

Over 80% of Murcian wines are exported, mostly to Europe and North America, where it is increasingly popular, but also to Africa and Asia.
