The first consignment of non-basmati rice (white rice 5% broken) of 100 tonnes is to be shipped to China from Nagpur on 28 September 2018. The consignment will be received by China National Cereals, Oils and Foodstuffs Corporation (COFCO) which is one of China’s state-owned food processing holding companies. After concerted efforts of the Government of India, 19 rice mills and processing units have been registered for export of non-basmati rice from India to China.

The protocol between General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China and the Department of Agriculture, Cooperation and Farmers Welfare of the Republic of India on phyto-sanitary requirements for exporting rice from India to China was signed on June 9, 2018 at Qingdao, China, during the visit of the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. This amended the earlier protocol on phyto-sanitary requirements for exporting rice from India to China to include the export of non-basmati varieties of rice from India.
