In 2019, a review of countries that export the most food products by value was published. This map from howlongtocook.org groups countries from profits of over $10 billion dollars to less than $10 million dollars. The top three counties earning over $10 billion dollars are the United States, Germany, and China. Switzerland just made it to the top earners list by a mere $1 billion dollars. There are several countries that barely missed earning a spot as a top earner- Vietnam and Poland were about $1 billion dollars short. It is impressive to see the small differences that some of these countries have between each other. Some of the smaller countries that earn under $10 million dollars in profit are mostly islands. The top three countries that earned under $10 million dollars may not be well known locations to the vast majority, and they are Palau, Saint Helena, and Nauru. Many of the places in this section are locations that have harsh climates or limited resources or land that is usable. One would wonder if any of these rankings are swapped even yearly due to outlying circumstances.
