Beef exports to the Caribbean continued to shine in April, reaching 2,891 mt – up 47% from a year ago and the fourth largest on record, according to data released by USDA and compiled by USMEF.

Export value increased 17% to just under $23 million. January-April exports to the region totalled 11,928 mt, up 24% from a year ago, valued at $99.3 million (up 15%). 

Beef variety meat exports increased 25% through April to 2,066 mt, valued at $4.8 million (up 22%), led by outstanding growth in Trinidad and Tobago and a continued rebound in shipments to Jamaica, the region’s top destination for beef variety meats.
