FAO says India non-basmati rice Jan-Jun export prices up 5.9% on year.

The average price of 25% broken non-basmati rice exported from India rose 5.9% on year to $352 per tonne during Jan-Jun. Prices are recovering now due to improved demand at lower prices. In 2016, the grain was sold at $332 per tonne because of low demand from Iran and other buyers. In June, 25% broken non-basmati rice from India was exported at $361 a tonne, while that from competitors–Thailand and Pakistan–was sold at $441 a tonne and $360 a tonne, respectively. Prices of 25% broken rice from Thailand fell by 1.9% on year to $381 a tonne, while rice from Vietnam declined 1% on year to $337 a tonne.
