Japan MMA Tender Results
Japan's Agriculture Ministry said on Friday that it bought 12,500 tonnes of rice from the United States, 6,000 tonnes from Thailand and 17,000 tonnes from China at an ordinary import tender. It also purchased 30,000 tonnes of optional origin rice.

Shipment is set from April 1 to June 10, a ministry official said. The average buying price was 36,125 yen ($345.6) per tonne.

It was the 10th ordinary tender for imported rice in the current fiscal year to March 31.

In the previous nine tenders, the ministry bought a total of 511,300 tonnes of rice.

The ministry holds two types of rice import tenders -- ordinary and simultaneous buy and sell (SBS) -- in line with world trade agreements.

In fiscal 2004/05, the ministry is obliged to buy 770,000 tonnes of foreign rice on a brown rice basis.

Of that total, it plans to buy 100,000 tonnes through SBS tenders, unchanged from the previous year, and the rest through ordinary tenders.

Rice imported under ordinary tenders is mainly used for processed food and alcohol, while that imported under SBS tenders is mostly used as table rice.
