Chinese market

One of the industry association’s priorities in 2023 is gaining new markets, especially China. “The Chinese market is extremely important for the rice industry because it is the largest producer and consumer worldwide,” says the export manager of the Brazilian Rice Industry Association, Carolina Matos.

Data from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) project a 2% drop in Chinese grain production by 2023. However, USDA also foresees a 1% increase in product consumption.

“Brazilian rice is already present in over 100 markets and can support product supply in the Asian region,” Carolina explains. According to the report, President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s visit to China will be an excellent opportunity to strengthen bilateral ties.

“Abiarroz has been working with the Brazilian government on the inclusion of the processed product on the negotiation agenda between the two countries,” emphasizes the group’s export manager.
