Organic growth spurt in Spain

SPAIN has the largest area dedicated to organic farming in the whole of Europe, according to Eurostat data.

It is also placed fifth in the world – following Australia, Argentina, the United States and China – thanks to its mild climate and perfect farming conditions.

The crisis hasn’t put a dent on organic farming, either, with profits and area growing year on year.

Agricultural technician Victor Gonzalvez, coordinator of the NGO Spanish Society of Organic Agriculture, said: “Ecological farming is growing in Spain and Europe despite the crisis because those who consume organic produce are loyal.”
