Vietnam exports 200,000 tonnes of rice to Malaysia

(VOV) -The Vietnam Southern Food Corporation (VINAFOOD II) has secured a contract to export 200,000 tonnes of 5% broken rice to Malaysia this year.

A VINAFOOD II representative revealed the price is fixed at US$410 per tonne, free on board basis and the rice will be shipped to Malaysia in July and August.

This is the second biggest rice contract Vietnam, one of the top three rice exporters, has signed with a foreign partner this year, following an 800,000 tonne contract with the Philippines in April.

UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) statistics show that average export prices of Vietnam’s 25% broken rice increased to around US$364 per tonne in May 2014, up about 2% from the previous month, but down by about 4% compared to the beginning of the year.

The 5% broken rice prices also rose to US$398 per tonne in May 2014 from US$386 per tonne in April, but were lower than the US$401 per tonne recorded at the beginning of the year.

Malaysia is Vietnam’s traditional rice importer, with last year’s import volume reaching nearly 466,000 tonnes, down 39% from 2012, according to the General Statistics Office of Vietnam.

The Vietnam Food Association (VFA) reported that in April 2014, Vietnam shipped 536,806 tonnes of rice abroad, earning almost US$237 million, free on board (FOB).

Since January of this year, local exporters have reaped approximately US$765 million from 1.75 million tonnes, down 18% in both value and volume against the same period last year.
