Agriculture Sector Overview

Ecuador's geographical location gives it a distinct advantage in agricultural and agro-industrial production. Its agricultural exports include asparagus, bananas, broccoli, cacao, coffee, flowers, heart of palm, lentils, papaya, passion fruit, pineapple, plantain, mango, red beans, and tomatoes.

Ecuador is the ideal place for growing an wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Its position on the equator affords extended, often year-round, growing seasons, and its distinct regions - the Amazon rainforest (Oriente), the Andes (Sierra), and the coast (Costa) - allow for the cultivation of a vast array of produce.

In addition to fresh produce, Ecuador also exports canned, dried, and jarred goods. Black beans in brine (salt and water), lentils in sauce, heart of palm in brine, pigeon peas in brine/sauce, pickles, pickled onions, pineapples in sauce, red beans in brine/sauce, tomato paste, and white beans in brine/sauce are some of the leading exports of processed produce.
