Three EU-Iceland economic agreements, signed in September 2015, entered into force on Tuesday. They provide the Union with greater access to the Icelandic market for agricultural and food products and the protection of EU regional products in the country.
The agreements guarantee greater access to the Icelandic market for products such as beef, pork, poultry and cheese. Iceland also gets greater access to the EU market for many of its goods, including from the dairy sector.
EU exports to Iceland include mainly coffee, fruit and vegetables, chocolate and processed food products. EU imports from Iceland, in turn, include seaweed, sheep meat, leather and fur products and various food preparations.
