Egypt buys 120,000 tonnes US wheat
CAIRO ,Egypt's main official wheat buyer turned to its traditional favourite of US wheat again on Wednesday, snubbing French and Australian grain to buy 60,000 tonnes each of US soft white and soft red winter (SRW) wheat.
Mohamed Abdel-Razek, president of the purchasing committee of the General Authority for Supply Commodities (GASC), said he had bought the US soft white wheat from Louis Dreyfus at a price of $143.99 per tonne, FOB from the US West Coast for shipment from August 21-31.
He said GASC had purchased the SRW wheat from Toepfer at a price of $139.60 per tonne, FOB from the East Coast and Gulf, for shipment from September 1-10.
"The price of US wheat was the best price of all the kinds of wheat," Abdel-Razek told Reuters.
The purchase was GASC's second in the new marketing year, which began in June.
It had also bought 300,000 tonnes of US wheat on June 28.
GASC had said on Tuesday it was seeking offers to purchase 60,000 tonnes of US North Pacific soft white wheat, US soft red winter wheat, French milling wheat or Australian standard white wheat for August 21-31 and/or September 1-10 shipment.
