Food is a major economic commodity, but only a few countries actually outshine at food production. Most agricultural products require a lot of lands, which only the largest countries have in abundance. In fact, the world’s four dominant food-producing countries all rank in the top five for total geographic size.

 

 

The 4 Top Food-Producing countries:

1. China

China is the world’s biggest producer, importer, and consumer of food. Much of China’s land is too mountainous or too arid for farming, but the rich soils of the eastern and southern regions are remarkably productive. China also has the world’s largest food workforce, with some estimates as high as 315 million laborers. To put this number in viewpoint, the U.S. is the world’s third most populous country with 329 million people, as of 2019

2. India

In terms of total calorie content, India is the second-largest food producer in the world. When measured by the total value of agricultural production instead, India drops to fourth place and produces less than half of China’s total output. Farm productivity in India is also far lower than in China, the U.S. or Brazil.

3. The United States

No country produces food as efficiently as the U.S. Despite having a significantly smaller workforce than China, the total U.S. agricultural produce is almost as high. Food production is spread across much of the country, but the largest food-producing states include California, Iowa, Texas, Nebraska, and Illinois.

4. Brazil

The Brazilian economy has historically centered on agriculture, particularly sugarcane, dating back to its time as a European colony. At least 31% of Brazil is used as cropland, largely to produce coffee, sugarcane, soybeans, and corn. Brazil is also a major producer of oranges, pineapples, papaya, and coconuts thanks to its warm, fruit-friendly environment. The country also ranks second (behind the U.S.) in total beef output.
