Mexico’s Rice Market Growing
U.S. rice farmers are undoubtedly benefiting from the record export sales to Mexico, the number one market for U.S. rice, but even better news is that a huge potential for growth still remains. According to statistics from the Consejo Mexicano del Arroz (Mexican Rice Council) Mexico imported a record 708,692 tons of U.S. paddy rice in 2003, which may be broken again in 2006. Ricardo Mendoza, Director General for the MRC credits the well targeted and effective promotional programs of the US Rice Producers Association and the Mexican Rice Council for playing key roles in the growth of per capita consumption among Mexican consumers. "It is important to point out, that these levels of growth are a result of the promotional works that have been conducted by USRPA in coordination with the Mexican Rice Council, a continuous effort that targets different segments of the Mexican market while stressing the importance of rice in the daily nutritional needs of the Mexican family," indicated Mr. Mendoza in a letter addressed to the USRPA this week. Dwight Roberts, President & CEO of the US Rice Producers Association is convinced that the strong working relationship between his organization and both the Federacion Nacional de Productores and the Consejo Mexicano del Arroz will continue to reap benefits for the U.S. rice industry. "With its large, young population coupled with as yet a low but increasing per capita consumption rate, I know this is a market that is almost limitless," stated Roberts. "We are proud of the relationship we enjoy with Ing. Pedro A. Diaz Hartz, President of the National Federation of Rice Producers and Ing. Ricardo Mendoza Mondragon of the MRC and realize the importance of promotional activities that enhance the rice industries in both countries," Roberts added. In a separate letter, Ing. Diaz Hartz expressed his interest in the promotional work of the USRPA directed at the low income consumer that "has caused a positive impact in the marketplace as a result of the alliances formed with Mexican organizations such as Diconsa, DIF and Un Kilo de Ayuda." "We believe that this impact can increase if we work in a coordinated manner and we reiterate our offer to establish a strategy with the US Rice Producers that will benefit our respective organizations," added Ing. Diaz Hartz. According to the USDA, U.S. rice exports are on track to reach a record 800,000 tons during the 2006 calendar year.
