¿What is meant by the “food and drink industry”? I mean agriculture, fishing and livestock and related industries such as biotechnology companies or canneries.

Here in Spain, this sector has been described as one of the most important industries in the country, a driving force for job creation and for economic recovery.In Castilla la Mancha  ,in central Spain where I live, agricultural products, especially wine  are exported more than anything else. Over  70% of these go to France, Portugal and Germany.

For Spain as a whole, it ranks second in export volume , encompasses over 30,200 companies and represents 2% of GDP. The most noteworthy products are  wine, olive oil, meat and fish.

The international market for Spanish food and drink.

There can be no doubt that Spanish gastronomy is a world success. In the  UK, in the last  25 years there has been a proliferation of Spanish restaurants which have reached as far north as  Inverness. Germany, France and Portugal  are also important consumers inside the European community. Outside the EU, China, has become an avid buyer of olive oil, meat, fish and serrano ham on account of its economic growth and the expanison of the middle-class there. The USA, Japan and Russia are also significant customers for the Spanish food industry.

In order to best cater for these international consumers, advertising material must be made in different languages. The quality of these products must be emphasized in English, German, French, Chinese, Portuguese and Japanese.

For this reason, Translate Naturally offers these companies a service for the following language combinations:

1.Spanish & English to German.

2.Spanish  To English (and vice versa).

3.Spanish & English to Chinese
