Berium Group rice trading and supply business is anchored on comprehensive, in-depth global market intelligence and invaluable insight across the worldwide rice value chain.
Rice is among the most widely distributed staple foods in the world, making up a significant portion of global farm land of about 160 million hectares of land. Global paddy rice production is about 700 million tons, equivalent to about 485 million tons once the rice is milled. From the 485 million tons of milled rice, most is consumed in domestic producing countries; only about 40 million tons is traded worldwide.
The importance of rice is largely attributed to its highest extraction compared to other cereals- when considering the fraction of each rice grain used as food, rice produces more energy per hectare than any other cereal.
We buy rice from Vietnam, Thailand, India, Pakistan and Myanmar for distribution across Africa. We use our extensive shipping and logistics capacity to deliver rice timely and at best price possible. We also support other rice suppliers, importers, exporters and traders with reliable supply chain solutions for rice importation and distribution across Africa.
