Jamaica: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

In 2017, U.S. agricultural exports of consumer-oriented products to Jamaica reached a record level of $470 million. The largest growth is in U.S. consumer-oriented products, with a 9 percent increase during the first ten months of 2018 compared to the same period in 2017. U.S. exports in this category represent a 38 percent market share. Although increased competition is expected in the near future due to Jamaica’s implementation of free trade agreements with other countries, the U.S. products with good sales potential include: cheese, hatching eggs, steakhouse-quality beef, sauces, fruit and vegetable juices, processed vegetables, frozen French fries and wine.
