Percent of rice that is industrially processed


Proportion of rice in a country that is industrially processed.


The proportion of a food that is industrially processed represents the opportunity for fortification, due to the presence of modern automation, quality control and quality assurance practices, and lower regulatory monitoring resources required by government. Mills must have a production capacity of at least 5 metric tonnes of rice per hour for rice fortification to be feasible.
