Caribbean Basin: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   C12021-0003

Eager to put the COVID-19 pandemic behind it, the Caribbean is doing all it can to attract visitors and kick-start its tourism sector in 2021. Despite new COVID variants and vaccination challenges slowing the recovery, tourism is beginning to rebound and thus the region’s Hotel Restaurant and Institutional (HRI) foodservice sector is beginning to see increased activity as well. Consequently, U.S. exports of consumer-oriented agricultural products to the Caribbean are also beginning to trend upward.
