There are no very well-known figures on foreign trade, since it is a market dominated by large international groups, many of the movements between different subsidiaries of the same company are not reflected in the statistics.

It is estimated that some 200,000 tonnes per year of infant food are imported, while exports are around 180,000 tonnes. Almost all of this foreign trade takes place between countries belonging to the European Union, since large operators usually set up production plants to supply all The European markets, which allows them to make their production and marketing processes more efficient.
