Caribbean Basin: Retail Foods

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Bahamas is the second largest market for U.S. consumer-oriented products in the Caribbean. It sources over 70 percent of its consumer-ready products from the United States, creating an environment of opportunity for U.S. suppliers of retail products in practically all product categories. Bahamian demand for U.S. products and brands is driven by its proximity to the United States and familiarity with the American lifestyle and culture. Modest upticks in the economy and growth in private consumption should create new opportunities for U.S. suppliers in the retail sector.
