International Prices

Rice

World white and parboiled rice prices were mixed in January, with the IGC-GOI rice sub-Index finishing slightly higher m/m. Gains were led by Thailand as currency moves, a delay to main crop harvesting and sales to Asian and African markets supported, while sharp falls were noted in Viet Nam amid weak nearby demand and pressure from new crop arrivals. In the US, Gulf quotes were underpinned by steady shipments to regular markets and Iraq.
