Outside of Asia, the highest per capita consumption of rice is in Africa. Of the 40.4 million metric tons (MMT) of rice globally traded in 2015/16, 11.7 MMT was exported to Africa.1 Rice is a growing key staple food in 19 African countries. The prevalence and impact of micronutrient deficiencies in West Africa are significant, and anemia rates, vitamin A deficiency and iodine deficiency remain a concern. Against this background, fortified rice has the potential to reach 130 million people in 12 African countries – none of which are in West Africa.
