Rice on USDA's Radar Screen For IRAQ
US Rice Federation
In two separate letters from USDA Under Secretary J.B. Penn to the USA Rice Federation, USDA acknowledges that there is a role for U.S. rice in food aid and commercial sales to Iraq. Although reiterating the position that there is enough rice for the summer/fall in Iraq under the auspices of the United Nations' World Food Program, Penn said in the letter, "...we are well aware that the situation could change very quickly and would certainly consider an [WFP] appeal for additional rice." Further, Penn wrote, "We agree with your [USA Rice] point that in the future U.S. agribusiness will have an opportunity to compete for contracts to supply Iraq with agricultural products to meet its commercial food import needs." WFP is coordinating all food aid efforts in Iraq. Gail Carlson, USA Rice's food aid director, is currently meeting with WFP officials in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa regarding channeling of more U.S. rice into WFP programs around the world.
