October 8, 2003, Spain, Europe’s fourth-largest organic food producer, is exporting 99.6% of its organic food, according to the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture and the Spanish organic food producers’ association EPEA.

Spain farms 666,000 hectares organically and generates organic food worth €173.9m (US$205.1m) annually, reported the Spanish News Digest.

The main area in Spain for organic farming is Andalucia, in the south of the country, where 225,600 hectares are devoted to organic farming. Olive oil accounts for most of Spain’s organic production at 40%.
