Between FY 2009 and 2019 banana imports increased from $1.2 to $2.2 billion

Consumers have preferred more fresh produce as many Americans substitute fresh for processed foods in pursuit of healthier diets. Additionally, increasing ethnic diversity and growing appreciation for more tropical fruit have led to growing imports of fruits such as pineapples, mangos, and papaya.

This has also led to an increase in banana imports -from $1.2 billion to $2.2 billion- between FY 2009 and FY 2019.
