Haiti: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   HA2024-0003

Haiti’s rice imports for marketing year July 2024 through June 2025 (MY 2024/2025) are forecast at 475,000 metric tons (MT), marginally higher compared to the previous marketing period driven by ongoing challenges to increase local production. Rice consumption during the same forecast period is projected unchanged at 530,000 MT relative to the same time last year as projected population growth and economic improvement are offset by large-scale human displacement. As social and political instability intensifies in the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince, which has far-reaching food security consequences nationwide, rice trade remains vulnerable to rapid deterioration due to irregularities in seaport operations and disruptions in food distribution networks.
