The launch of ecological products: ensuring health and well-being
All these benefits seem to have made an impact on Spanish society, which has increased its consumption of environmentally friendly products significantly over the past decade. In fact, Spanish people have doubled their spending on sustainable food since 2013, from 22 euros on average to 47 euros in 2019. And especially among young people, according to data from the report ‘The ecological sector in Spain 2018’, 30% of its consumers in our country are less than 35 years of age.
However, Spain is far behind other European countries around us, especially the Nordic countries. Thus, for example, the internal Spanish market forecological products amounted to 1,686 million euros in sales for 2017, 2,700 million euros for Sweden.
Swedish consumers have been traditionally more aware of sustainable food production and environmentally friendliness. Another trend that has increased in the last few years, is their concern fortheir health and physical well-being. Thus, they are pioneers in activities that combine exercise and care for the environment, such as plogging.
Nevertheless, the growth figures for eco-friendly consumption in Spain are hopeful and other indicators such as those indicate that 41% of consumers avoid the use of plastic in their purchases or that 37% of them chose products with a sustainable package, which brings optimism.
