Panama: Rice Certification
Authorities and growers are considering installing neutral laboratories to certify rice quality.
Thursday, August 20, 2009
Panamanian officials will visit Nicaragua in September, to learn about this country's experience, as they have 12 laboratories operating in the most important rice mills.
The first shipment of imported milled rice to meet domestic demand for August and September should arrive next week .
Local production of the grain is increasing and approaching self-sufficiency figures, while prices are stable.
The country will import 1.3 million quintals in order to compensate for current low crop yields.
It will not be until February next year that there will be a discussion on import quotas, when a new inventory will be compiled.
