The Director-General of the organisation, Mr Osita Aboloma, said this in Abuja on Tuesday at the 3rd Nigeria Rice Investment Forum organised by the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).
Represented by Dr Barth Ugwu, the Head, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) office of the organisation, Aboloma said the standards, developed in 2016 was to improve the quality of paddy and milled rice.
He said that total compliance with the standards would ensure zero rejection of the country’s agricultural products at the international markets.
The director-general listed some of the quality parameters embedded in the standards to include germination, husk less seed, pesticides, residues, packaging, labelling and storage.
“The focus of these developed standards is to provide guidance and recommendations to both small and large operators involved in growing and processing of rice to raise product quality.
“The use of these standards will provide rice farmers, processors and transporters proper ground to produce safe food that can compete favourably in the international markets.
“The implementation of these standards will promote the development of the rice industry in Nigeria and grow the rice value chain,’’ he said.
The Chief Executive Officer, the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), Business Group, Mrs Gloria Akobundu, said that increase in agricultural production was crucial to promoting the country’s economy.

“Nigeria is the second highest importer of rice in the world and the highest in Africa,’’ she said.
Mr Hiroshi Kodama, the Senior Representative of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), said the agency had assisted Nigerian farmers in rice milling and processing in Niger and Nasarawa States.
He said the agency would extend its assistance to other states of the federation to boost rice production in the country.
