Banana-producing countries


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)[1]. Most bananas are consumed in the country where they are produced (exports represent less than 16 per cent of global production).

In 2018, 155 million tonnes[2] of bananas were produced globally[1].

Map

Below is an interactive map of banana-producing countries. Production is measured in tonnes[2]. The production values represent the total of the bananas and plantains categories into which the FAO breaks down the banana crop[3]. 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).
