Surprised to see so few African countries on the list. Does this not include bananas grown for personal consumption or something?

Your question made me wonder about banana global commodity chains. Out of curiosity I looked them up on Follow the Thing and found this.

Same. I've been in Cameroon once and you could buy bananas everywhere on the street. Now that country might be still too small, but I'd definitely expect countries like Nigeria and DR Congo on this list.

Right. I thought for sure Uganda, where they're a staple. My guess is that only bananas for export make most national lists.

In hindsight some obvious ones on here - due to their sheer size China etc would likely produce a high amount of bananas - but they didn’t come to mind at all at first ‘cause I was trying all the African and South American countries...
