RiceTech to focus on milling technologies

Our Bureau

VIJAYAWADA, Oct. 9

AN international exhibition and seminar on rice processing technologies, RiceTech 2002, is being organised here during October 11-13 by the local magazine, Ricemill Reporter.

Mr S.K. Baji, the publisher of the magazine and the organiser of the event, said at a press conference here that the Union Minister of State for Food and Public Distribution, Mr. U.V Krishnam Raju, will inaugurate it and several rice milling companies from China, Thailand, Korea and Taiwan would participate in the exhibition.

He said there was heavy loss of grain in the non-trading mills due to use of antiquated machinery and rice exports would get a boost only by upgrading the technology. Andhra Pradesh, with the largest number of rice mills, should take the lead in the matter and the public sector banks as well as private banks should help in the endeavour.

He said nearly 1,500 delegates would participate in the seminar and exhibition and the AP rice mills directory would also be released on the occasion.
