United Arab Emirates: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The United Arab Emirates’ consumption and imports of grain and feed are projected to increase over the coming year. Rice and wheat consumption will grow with the UAE’s economic recovery, spurred by one of the world’s fastest vaccination drives. Growing herds will help lift demand for corn and barley. A government push for greater food security through a strategic stockpile will lift all imports. FAS Dubai forecasts UAE all wheat imports to increase by 13 percent to 1.7 MMT. Rice imports are forecast to increase by 15 percent to 1.150 MMT. UAE MY2021/22 corn imports are forecast to increase by roughly 8 percent to reach 700,000 MT, and barley imports in MY2021/22 are forecast to increase 6 percent to reach 500,000 MT.
