Japan Resumes Rice Imports
The Japan Food Agency told the USA Rice Federation that two import tenders for rice were opened today. Imports of rice, wheat, and barley were halted last month when rice from China and Vietnam was found to contain unacceptable levels of certain agricultural chemicals. Today’s announcement follows concerted efforts by the U.S. government and USA Rice leaders to reopen this key U.S. market. The tenders include an “Ordinary Minimum Access” tender of 51,000 metric tons (MT), of which the United States will supply at least 13,000 MT, and a “Simultaneous-Buy-Sell” (SBS) tender of 25,000 MT, with U.S. rice expected to be purchased under the SBS tender. The Japanese government is the sole importer of rice in Japan and the United States supplies just under one-half of Japan’s yearly imports of 682,200 MT (milled basis). Japan is the second largest country destination for U.S. rice and the largest foreign customer for U.S. medium-grain rice. Sales in 2007 totaled $167 million.
