El Salvador: Exporter Guide
During 2019, El Salvador continued strengthening its commercial ties with the United States as it imported about $567 million of agricultural products, which is 4 percent more than in 2018. Undoubtedly, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the upward trend reflecting a drop of about 10 percent in the January-October 2020 period. Consumer-oriented products with focus on health benefits are good sellers as Salvadorans have become concerned about their health as a result of the pandemic. Other best performing categories during 2019 were: processed foods, dairy, processed vegetables, fresh fruits, chocolate, condiments and sauces, snack foods and wine/beer.
