Weekly household consumption of rice in the United Kingdom (UK) 2006-2016/17 In 2016/17, average rice purchases per capita per week amounted to 90 grams in the United Kingdom. This marks the lowest rice consumption since 2008. The downward trend in consumption started from a peak rice consumption of 103 grams in 2014. For a 52-week year, this means a drop in consumption from 2014 to 2016/17 of 676 grams less rice.
Consumption in detail

The UK consumer purchases three different types of rice: dried rice, cooked rice, and takeaway rice. The amount of takeaway rice that was eaten by consumer has remained relatively stable for the past ten years. Changes are mainly happening among the two other types. The purchase of cooked rice grew by 6 grams to 24 grams in 2016/17. Dried rice purchases declined by 15 grams from 2015/16 to 2016/17.

Rice trade

Rice isn’t produced in the UK. Therefore, the only source of rice are imports from around the world. The value of imports in 2018 was almost 350 million British pounds. Fluctuations in imports of tens of millions of pounds are common. Nonetheless, growth in 2008 compared to the previous year still constitutes a major jump in imports. Despite the UK not producing rice, Exports do happen. Rice re-exports from the UK amounted to a seventh of the value of imports in 2018.
