Caribbean Basin: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

After exporting a record-high $1.1 billion in consumer-oriented agricultural products to the Caribbean in 2019, U.S. suppliers saw the COVID-19 pandemic take a toll on Caribbean demand for imported food and beverages in 2020. U.S. exports of consumer-oriented products to the region dropped 14 percent in 2020 (Jan-Oct) when compared to the same period in 2019.
