Rice is a staple food in Hong Kong and is therefore scheduled as a reserved commodity under the subsidiary regulations of the Reserved Commodities Ordinance (Cap. 296), Laws of Hong Kong. Under the Ordinance, the Government operates the Rice Control Scheme to ensure a stable supply of rice and to keep a reserve stock sufficient for consumption by the population for a reasonable period to cater for emergencies or any short term shortage of supply.

Please view the introductory guidelines on the Rice Control Scheme (pdf format) and its Annexes (pdf format) for details.
