Australian Rice shortage to force temporary industry restructure
Rice shortage to force temporary industry restructure

The rice industry is facing its smallest crop in 80 years, which is forcing SunRice to consider new measures to cope with not having enough rice to run its three mills.

Mike Heddich, the general manager of grower services at SunRice, says only 2,000 hectares of rice was expected to be planted this year.

He says SunRice will need to seek offshore supplies to satisfy local demand.

Mr Heddich says ground water pumpers were the only farmers with water and it was now almost too late for rain to change the outlook.

"The opportunity for more rice to be planted if there was a weather event has just about gone, so our board will be making some very tough decisions very soon about how we're going to restructure the industry on a temporary basis," he said.

"And I stress they'll be temporary restructures."
