90,000 MT Rice Sale to Iraq Reported Today
The Iraqi Grain Board purchased 90,000 tons of U.S. rice for August/September shipment, a Reuters news agency report from Jordan said today. Archer Daniels Midland sold the rice for $440 to $450 per ton FOB, deliverable to the Iraqi port of Umm Qasr, the report said. USA Rice Federation received independent confirmation of the sale from a U.S. Department of Agriculture source in Baghdad. According to the Reuters report, Iraq imports nearly 87,000 tons of rice per month. At least 100,000 tons of outstanding contracts since December have not been delivered. Iraq faces a shortage, with 121,000 fewer tons arriving this year through June than the 392,000 tons delivered during the same period last year. A J.P. Gaines report today said the tender under which the rice was sold called for “long-grain No. 2, 5 percent broken, well-milled.” A new tender is expected soon “to assure adequate rice supply during Ramadan religious observance,” the Gaines report said.
