The report begins with an overview of the U.S. banana market, its value chain projections and demand characteristics, followed by a SWOT analysis of the D.R. banana sector as well as a discussion of identity and branding considerations. In the concluding section, short-term and medium-term strategies for enhancing the D.R.'s presence in the U.S. organic banana market are presented.
