According to the sources, it has been reported recently that Brazil had revenues of over 11% with exports of rice in the first four months of the year, or $ 108.2 million, as per statement issued by the Brazilian Association of Rice Industry ( Abiarroz ) based on information from the Department of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade (Secex / MDIC ). Further, it has also been narrated that the improvement is attributed to the successful actions of the project Brazilian Rice – a partnership between Abiarroz and the Brazilian Agency for Export and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brazil) for the incentive to export rice benefited, as revealed by the Project Manager, Mr Gustavo Ludwig. In this regard, for example the Peru, bought 62% more Brazilian rice in value this year and this reflects the participation of Brazilian Rice and Brazilian companies at the fair Expoalimentaria held in the country.
In addition, Mr Ludwig also cites the United States, where sales jumped from $ 2.8 million to $ 8.5 million in the period, followed after missions of exploration and trade project, and Saudi Arabia, a market consolidation phase for rice Brazil as the Brazil participates since 2012 the Gulfood as reference, which grew by 6% this year. For 2016, the expectation is that the growth in shipments may continue, despite the appreciation of the real against the dollar and almost 14% drop in rice crop from the previous cycle. However, in this context, we are seeking to offset these difficulties with the search for new markets, expansion of US stocks and inclusion of new companies in the exporting process keeping in view that more than 50 countries bought the Brazilian cereal in 2016 as it was informed by Mr Ludwig,.
