Total sales of juices and nectars in Spain hit €941 million in 2015, 2.7 per cent less than the previous year. This according to figures from Asozumos, the Spanish juice manufacturer representative body.
As reported on financialfood.es, Javier Lorenzo, president of Asozumos, said that "this volume would mean our country represents almost 10 per cent of the total European market for juices and nectars, which represents a yearly consumption of 20.3 litres per capita.
"This indicates Spain's relevant position in Europe, where the average approaches 19 litres per capita, putting it behind big consumers that have less access to fresh fruit such as Germany and Finland - both with a consumption of over 25 litres per capita on the same period."
Orange continues to be the most popular flavour, with 30 per cent of consumption, followed by pineapple and peach with 18 per cent each. After that, multi-fruit mixes with 15 per cent of the market and lastly, apple with 3 per cent.
