Dominican Republic: Food Processing Ingredients

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Dominican Republic’s food processing industry was valued at $2.6 billion in 2016, with an additional $723 million for processed beverages and tobacco. The United States has a strong history of supplying meat, edible meat offal, and animal and vegetable fats for the Dominican meat processing industry; this is expected to continue. There is potential for increased exports of U.S. ingredients for the Dominican milling, dairy and confectionery industries, especially since CAFTA-DR will be fully implemented by 2025.
