Brinland - LRT - 3.5 Brinland Food and Additional Suppliers

Note: Brinland applies high protectionist standards towards local production and industry.

Import is generally strongly regulated and large list of items is either prohibited, restricted or subject to taxes.


Main Food Suppliers

Brinland is not a food insecure country. The latest crops were quite satisfactory compared to the past three years. However, given the deteriorating situation of the local economy, most of the crops have been exported abroad (60% to Northland, 30% to Southland and 10% elsewhere), immediately generating the needed cash revenue for the population. However, for the past three months food is being re-imported due to the lack of rice and pulses in the country.

Brinland has the infrastructure in place to import the required food, mostly from Northland. However, the economic constraints prevent Brinland from re-importing the total required quantities of food. The Government does not hold any emergency food stocks/reserves. Average food consumption is 150 kg per person per year of cereal and pulses in total. Per capita availability however, fell recently down to 140 kg. Brinland’s Government does not allow import of GMO commodities in the country.
