Costa Rica Retail Foods 2022

Report Highlights:
The Costa Rican retail sector is growing despite lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, global supply chain disruptions, and rising prices. An increasing number of modern supermarkets stock an expanding range of imported products that reflect global and local retail trends, including clean labels, responsible packaging, and organic products. U.S. exports of high-value, consumer-oriented products to Costa Rica – largely sold through retail channels – were nearly $400 million in 2021.
