Led by outstanding growth in El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama, US pork exports to Central America remain very strong, according to data released by USDA and compiled by the US Meat Export Federation (USMEF).

Through the first two months of the year, shipments to the region were 17% above last year at 24,055 mt, valued at $72.4 million – up 26% from the record value pace of 2023. 

Export volume to leading markets Honduras and Guatemala were modestly lower through February, though export value still trended higher.
