Jordan Rice Imports
2006/2007 Jordan Rice Imports are expected to reach 132,000 MT. Jordon imports MG rice.

Rice Production and Consumption

Jordan is one of the eight driest countries in the world. As a result, there is no rice production. Rice is one of the main staples of the Jordanian diet. Average consumption is about 25kg per person per year. The preferred variety is medium grain (Camolino), which constitutes 90 percent of imports.

Rice Trade

Rice trade is conducted by the private sector. Imports in 2005 were 130,000 MT, of which 66,206 metric tons came from the United States. The figure is expected to increase slightly, but with a decline in U.S. market share due to high prices in general and low prices of Egyptian rice. This low cost is due to lower shipment costs. In addition to the United States, major suppliers are Egypt, Thailand, and Pakistan. Total rice imports during 2006 are at the same level as 2005, but with Egypt contributing a larger share. Although Australian rice is a major competitor, no imports took place in 2006 due to the fact that the Australian harvest was poor for the second consecutive year. Thus competition for medium grain rice was strong between the U.S. and Egypt. Egyptian rice is imported bagged and in small vessels. U.S. rice is imported in bulk and is bagged in Jordan. Imports of consumer packaged parboiled long grain and Basmati rice during 2006 are estimated at 30,000 metric tons. U.S. long grain rice exports face strong competition from Thailand and Pakistan.
