The President of the Ghana Rice Inter-Professional body John Kennedy Imoro Amoro says the best Ghanaians can do to stop the infiltration of plastic and other unwholesome rice into the country is for the people to develop the appetite for the consumption of local rice.

Mr. Amoro told Radio Ghana that Ghana's local rice is comparable to all the foreign rice imported into the country.

They are fresh, taste good and more nutritious.

He was reacting to reports of smuggled Chinese plastic rice into the country.
