Mercapalma was affected by lower demand from hospitality. | Teresa Ayuga
The manager of Mercapalma, Jeroni Barbón, points to there having been a significant drop in sales because of the pandemic. He says that the general consumer food sector was comparatively unaffected last year but that sales to hotels, bars and restaurants were greatly affected, and these constitute Mercapalma's biggest market. The loss of tourism was clearly the principal reason.
