This study analyses the composition and policy options surrounding the food import bill (FIB) of the CARICOM Member States, as well as policy options for its reduction. This study, commissioned by the FAO Project on “Promoting CARICOM/CARIFORUM Food Security” for the CARICOM Secretariat and for the benefit of CARICOM Member States, explores the composition (in product terms), value (in both absolute terms and relative to key variables), and policy/investment options for national governments concerned with rising levels of food imports.
