Central America shines for U.S. pork

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

U.S. pork exports have been bolstered this year by a very strong performance in Central America.

Innovative promotional campaigns, strong connections with the region’s meat industry and a favorable economic climate have helped push exports to Central America well above year-ago levels, with volume through May increasing 19 percent to 26,460 metric tons. January-May export value increased 9 percent to $61.3 million.
