Volume of rice imported in Canada 2008-2019

In 2019, Canada imported over 370,000 metric tons of rice, increasing from around 290,000 metric tons the previous year. Rice is a type of grain that comes in thousands of varieties. It is consumed all over the world and is an essential part of more than half the global population’s diet.

U.S. rice production

Each year, the amount of rice produced in the United States differs: in 2019, the country was responsible for an estimated 185 million cwt of rice, a decrease of nearly 20 percent compared to the previous year. Some of 2019’s top rice-producing states included Louisiana, California, and Missouri. The leading state, however, was Arkansas, which cultivated approximately 85 million cwt that year.

Global rice imports and exports

In the fiscal year of 2018/19, India exported nearly ten million metric tons of rice, making India the export leader. Thailand ranked second with an export volume of about seven and a half million metric tons. Despite also being one of the world's leading rice exporters, China imported the highest volume of the grain during the same period. Chinese rice imports amounted to roughly four and a half million, while the country’s exports reached over two and a half million metric tons.
