Agribusiness - Investment Opportunities
Vision and Policy
It is our vision to become the granary for the whole of Caricom. Soon the 14 caribbean countries can depend upon Suriname for their basic demand in fruits, vegetables and meat.
The combination of fertile soil available at competitive prices, the favorable climate conditions and the abundance of hydric resources, provide the perfect scenario for the establishment of export-oriented agricultural production.
According to the Exportable Offer Study conducted by FDI BIBIS, the products with the greatest export potential are rice, cassava (waxed and frozen), peanuts (processed or shell-less), cocoa (beans or powdered), honey, beans (black and red) and cashews. Other products with great potential are sesame seeds, pineapple, mango, guava, watermelon, onions, vegetables and citrus (especially lemon and oranges).
