In 2010, January to October US prepared duck exports increased by 16% compared to 2009 numbers, according to a US Department of Agriculture report.

The leading importer of US prepared duck meat is Canada, receiving 45% of exports. Vietnam, Thailand, Ecuador and Suriname cover the majority of the remainder.

Overall duck commodity exports were down 1% for the January-October 2010 period due to a decrease in frozen commodity duck exports that offset the 25% increase in frozen whole duck exports.
