Caribbean Food & Drink Report

Though signs of growth are beginning to return to the Caribbean, economies within the region continue to feel the spillover effects of the 2009 financial crisis, which strongly shook the region's key industries of tourism and finance. With this in mind, we forecast relatively slow food consumption growth in a majority of the Caribbean markets. Despite these difficulties, some markets, most notably Jamaica and Dominican Republic, are expected to outperform over the forecast period.
