Algeria: Mixed wheat loads rejected

Comment on this story

ALGERIA’S grain agency OAIC has told traders it would reject cargoes containing wheat from different origins after news that France had imported wheat to boost the quality of contracts signed before the harvest, according to a letter seen by Reuters yesterday. Reuters reported that France, the EU’s largest wheat exporter, had imported Lithuanian and British wheat to compensate for the poor quality of its rain-soaked harvest. The OAIC reminded traders its tender and contract rules forbade such mixes and that the wheat must come directly from its country of origin. – Reuters
