Tropico Wiki

For articles of the same name in other Tropico games, see Goods.

Goods are items in Tropico that are consumed by citizens or exported for income.


Exporting goods is one of the major incomes for an island (the other being Tourism). Certain goods may be used as food and will only be exported if there is a surplus, or they may be processed into more profitable export products.

Raw Goods

Raw Goods are grown or extracted from the earth with no further processing, they are typically sold for much less than the post-processed result. Prices will fluctuate depending on world events, trade agreements, and what year it is; those listed both in-game and below are for each 100 units.

Processed Goods

If an Industrial building is working Teamsters will bring stored goods from a source building. If the building can not find a source of raw materials the workers will have nothing to do (and a sack with a red line will appear above it). As mentioned above the prices here and in-game are per 100 units.
