The Spanish chorizo consortium, Consorcio del Chorizo Español (CChE), has released its data on the first trimester of this year, sharing statistics that indicate a stunning growth in this booming Spanish gastronomy sector.
More than a half million kilograms of quality Spanish chorizo received the CChE export seal during the period in question, not only representing a 55% increase from this time last year, but also pointing to estimated totals of some 2.1 million kilograms of chorizo receiving this seal in 2018, as opposed to the 1.6 million kilograms that were given the seal in 2017.
The Consorcio del Chorizo Español (CChE) is a voluntary association founded two years ago to protects the interest of producers and consumers of Spanish chorizo, as well as to promote its sale and export.
According to the association, two of the most important markets for CChE quality seal Spanish chorizo are France and the United Kingdom, both of which have been successfully targeted by CChE for intense marketing and communications campaigns so far this year. Other important export destinations for Spanish chorizo include Germany, Canada and Belgium.
