Bananas are produced in 135 countries and overseas territories across the tropics and subtropics, according to the statistics compiled by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Most bananas are consumed in the country where they are produced (exports represent less than 16 per cent of global production).
Below is an interactive map of banana-producing countries. Production is measured in tonnes. The production values represent the total of the bananas and plantains categories into which the FAO breaks down the banana crop. The quantity of bananas produced in overseas territories is accessible from the country it is associated with (France, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom and United States of America).
