AWB to conduct probe into quality complaints on wheat import
NEW DELHI, MAY 1: A high-level team from Australia’s state-owned company AWB will reach India on Tuesday to probe certain “quality issues” as some Indian customers had complained that the imported wheat did not meet some prescribed norms, an AWB official said on Monday.
“We have sent a high-level delegation to India as some Indian customers had complained that certain samples did not meet the quality (prescribed),” Peter McBride, spokesman, AWB, told CRISIL MarketWire over phone from Melbourne.
The Indian government has awarded a 500,000 tonne wheat import deal to AWB to shore up its buffer stocks — the first consignment of which had reached Chennai port on Tuesday.

As of April 1, the government’s buffer stocks were at two million tonne as against the four-million-tonne norm. “We take each and every complaint seriously... We are sending the team to get details and probe the issue.

However, we follow very stringent quality norms,” Mr McBride said, adding, the AWB team would begin the investigation on Tuesday itself.

Last week, agriculture minister Sharad Pawar had said that India would not compromise on quality parameters for wheat imports. The country has also decided to import three million tonne wheat in addition to the 500,000 tonne already contracted.
