Egypt's total wheat purchases since the beginning of MY 2003/04 (July, 2003) are estimated at 534,508 MT.
During the months of July and August, 2003, GASC purchased 180,000 MT of USSRW wheat at a reported prices of between $139.99 and $ 149.93 per MT (FOB) and 60,000 MT of USSWW for delivery during the period of August 21 to October 10, 2003. According to local industry estimates, private sector companies also imported 96,430 MT of US HRW wheat; 64,463 MT of wheat from Russia; 63,445 MT from Germany; 23,000 MT of wheat from Sweden; 25,670 MT of wheat from Syria and 21,500 MT of wheat from France.
Price of unsubsidized breed in Egypt has been on the increase in recent weeks due to declining wheat imports by private sector mills. The price of unsubsidized bread increased by about 25 percent in the last three months. Lack of foreign exchange availability for private sector imports, and the continuing devaluation of the pound is pushing local prices of basic commodities high.
In reaction to these price increases, for the first time in over 12 years, the Ministry of Supply recently authorized the General Authority for Supply Commodities to import 120,000 metric ton of wheat per month for the production of 72 percent extraction flour by the Food Industries Holding Company (FIHC) which competes with private sector mills in the open market. A portion of this wheat will be used strictly for the production of Fino bread for schools at 10 piasters per loaf and the other portion will be sold by GASC to FIHC. The government plans to spend LE 130 million per month to subsidize the price of Fino bread for school children.
