Brazil will lower rice import tariff
SAO PAULO , Brazil will lower its common import tariff (TEC) for up to 500,000 tonnes of rice starting October 1 through December 31 to make up for an expected shortfall in Mercosur output, the Agriculture Ministry said on Thursday.
"The weather has not favoured the rice harvest in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay (the Mercosur trade bloc) this season," said Jose Maria, director of the crop and animal supply department at the ministry.
Maria said up to 100,000 tonnes de-husked or milled rice will be allowed to make up part of the total 500,000 tonne quota.
The rest of the rice imports receiving the lower TEC will have to be unmilled, or with husk.
Brazil normally imports about 1.5 million tonnes of rice annually from the Mercosur bloc where there is no TEC tariff imposed on grain trade.
Previous to reducing the TEC for rice, it stood at 11.5 percent for non-Mercosur countries.
"We expect rice from the United States and Thailand and other Asian countries to make up the shortfall in our imports this year," said Maria.
Prices of unmilled rice have shot up in the southern state of Parana to between 35 and 45 reais a bag depending on the weight and quality, from 20 to 25 reais in March.
