World Food Programme to Ship Vietnamese Rice to West Africa
Rome, Italy, July 18th, 2005 – The World Food Programme (WFP) has arranged for Vietnamese rice to be shipped to three countries in West Africa and to East Timor ex-Ho Chi Minh City area ports. The WFP has contracted with Swiss international grain trading agent, Nidera SA, to source the export quality rice and with The Freight Company’s (TFC) Vietnam operation to ship the rice to the final destinations.

Donor nations who have pledged this rice include Norway (exports to Cameroon, Gambia and Mauritania), Luxembourg (exports to Gambia) and Japan (exports to East Timor). “The nearly 3000 tons will begin shipping to the various destinations during the end of July, 2005,” says Torbjoern Larisch, of The Freight Company, an Aeroceanetwork member, “and these will continue to ship through much of the following month of August.”

The World Food Programme (WFP) is an agency of the United Nations which distributes food commodities to support development projects, to long-term refugees and displaced persons and as emergency food assistance in situations of natural and man-made disasters. Its headquarters is in Rome, Italy. The Freight Company is a Swiss owned and expatriate managed commercial and specialized freight forwarding company with headquarters in Bangkok and a regional office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
