In today’s world where consumers have a conscience about the source of the products they acquire, the relative proximity of Portugal to the UK market scores a big positive.
Having benefited from generous EU subsidies, Portuguese producers and manufacturers are equipped with the most modern technologies enabling them to compete with further flung countries.
This has been evidenced by the recent surge of exports to savvy buyers throughout the continent.
As skyrocketing transport costs are often uppermost in the minds of importers and CP26 highlighted the importance of reducing distances from production to consumption, Portugal has proven to be an interesting option for carbon footprint conscious buyers.
Portugal’s ability to reinvent themselves and create new products and new production techniques makes Portugal an outstanding source!
Many products have gained momentum in the post-pandemic period, and the strong performance of the textile sector is particularly noticeable in international trade.
