Strong retail and foodservice demand, combined with an ASF-driven downturn in domestic production, have contributed to a surge in US pork exports to the Dominican Republic, according to a recent press release from the US Meat and Export Federation (USMEF). 

Through April, shipments to the Dominican Republic were up 55% from last year’s record pace to 42,659 mt, valued at $112.6 million (up 67%). 

With demand also increasing in Trinidad and Tobago, the Leeward-Windward Islands, Netherlands Antilles, Cayman Islands and Barbados, January-April exports to the Caribbean region increased 49% to 49,069 mt, valued at $135.2 million (up 57%).
