Russia Temporarily Bans Rice Imports
Russia temporarily stopped issuance of rice import permits and canceled previously issued permits effective December 4, 2006. Import permit issuance by the central office of the Russian phytosanitary service will resume at some undetermined future date, after the border crossing points for rice have been equipped for more thorough inspection of imported rice. In the meantime, domestic Russian rice prices are expected to rise sharply.

Russian Production and Trade in Rice Rice production in Russia is concentrated in Krasnodar kray, where in 2001-2005 on average 82 percent of Russia’s rice was produced. Domestic Russian rice is round rice used primarily for porridge. In 2005 one of the largest Russian agribusiness holding companies, the Razgulyay-Ukrros Group, invested in production and milling of rice in Krasnodar kray. Rice production in this kray increased from a 2004 level of 398,000 metric tons paddy rice (approximately 259,000 mt of milled rice) to 475,000 metric tons paddy (309,000 metric tons milled) in 2005. Some experts estimate that unmilled rice production in Russia will reach 700,000 metric tons in 2006, with most of that growth in Krasnodar kray production. Russia’s domestic consumption of milled rice has been stable through 2001- 2005, and is estimated at approximately 720,000 – 730,000 metric tons. The gap between domestic production and consumption is filled with rice imports. Type of imported rice and quality of imported rice has been changing: along with growth of domestic production of round grain rice, imports of long grain rice increased. Starting at the beginning of 2005 the Russian government took several steps to limit imports of rice, with most attention to cheap varieties of round grain rice (GAIN reports RS5019 New Import Duty on Rice, and RS5083 Rice and Products Import Duties). In January – September 2006 imports of rice decreased to 276,000 metric tons, compared with 310,340 metric tons in January – September 2005.
