Bangladesh: Exporter Guide Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   BG2022-0035

In calendar year 2021, Bangladesh imported $12 million of consumer-oriented food from the United States, up 11 percent over 2016. The income and purchasing power of the middle-class continue to reach new heights, boosting demand for imported food. However, the food market is highly competitive as domestic processed food companies are expanding, and consumers are seeking value, but quality products. The changing dynamics of the Bangladeshi market are expanding opportunities for consumer-oriented products for food processing, modern retail, and the hotel, restaurant, and institutional sectors. This report serves as an all-in-one resource for prospective U.S. exporters to Bangladesh with information on the food and beverage market, business culture, consumer preferences, import regulations, and trends.
