France emerges as Vietnam’s second-largest rice importer in January

February 28, 2024

France secured the second position, importing 17,919 tonnes of Vietnamese rice valued at $18.64 million. In January, the average export price of rice to France reached $1,040 per tonne, marking the highest among all of Vietnam's rice export markets during that period. In January 2023, France was not on the list of the top importers of Vietnamese rice, but the European country has moved up impressively to overtake Indonesia and China – two large purchasers of Vietnamese rice – a year later to rank only after the Philippines. Among the amount of rice France brought in from Vietnam in January, fragrant rice represented 97 percent, white rice two percent, and Japonica rice one percent. Among the EU countries, France is the top importer of rice from abroad, with nearly 600,000 tonnes imported last year, of which 3.2 percent was from Vietnam.
