Long, round or even short, rice is part of the pantry of many French people. And for good reason, this star cereal on our plates is available indefinitely! Risotto, in a salad, with meat and even for dessert, rice is a real must at the time of the races. On average, nearly five kilograms are consumed per year and per inhabitant. However, its fans are likely to look gloomy in the months to come.
Indeed, a threat hangs over this food with many nutritional benefits. Like pasta, but also oil, rice is likely to join the list of essentials that we could soon have hard to get. Thus, the unstable weather of recent seasons in Asian countries should impact global supply in the months to come. To add to the misfortunes of aficionados, one of its flagship references is now the subject ofa massive recall all over France…
