Rice is becoming more expensive in Switzerland. This is due to more expensive imports. Meanwhile, rice cultivation in Switzerland is still very small. (Iconic image)

In Switzerland, rice has been growing in Ticino for a long time. However, it is grown dry there, like wheat. Ticino rice farmers harvest around 450 tons a year. But that doesn’t come close to covering consumption: Switzerland imports 60,000 tons of rice every year.

The Swiss Farmers’ Association puts the annual rice consumption per capita at 6.5 kilos. For comparison: the most popular grain in this country, wheat, weighs over 70 kilos. Potatoes are eaten at around 50 kilos per head.
