LAHORE The Trading Corporation of Pakistan has sold 25,000 MT of Super Basmati Rice to the two highest bidders, namely, M/s. Al-Asad Rice Mills and M/s. Moro Trading Company through tender at a price of Rs 65,072 per matric ton. The rice was procured by the Corporation in 2009 on the directives of the Federal Government as a price support initiative. The market intervention by the TCP, at that time, brought stability to the prices. The rice was earlier put to sale through tender in April, 2010, when it failed to attract appropriate prices, due to depressed international market. TCP fetched better price today due to its certification by the Rice Research Institute at Kala Shah Kaku, Lahore, confirming as good quality rice.
