  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   HO2024-0001
The total value of US agricultural exports in 2023 was USD 1.3 billion, down 4 percent from the previous year. Bulk products fell USD 53 million, while intermediate products rose USD 23 million. The main staple foods are white corn (maize), beans, and rice, with corn being consumed more than wheat or any other grain. Nonetheless, the balancing feed business consumes the vast majority of imported yellow corn and soy. This industry produces around 1.3 to 1.4 million tons of feed per year for all species. Honduras is a net wheat importer, while rice output only covers about 10% of domestic demand. National production of pork meat is a modest 35 million pounds per year, with an annual domestic demand of 135 million pounds.
