Jordan, Egypt Buy Wheat

Jordan bought 150,000 tons of wheat, including 50,000 tons from Russia, the Industry and Trade Ministry said Thursday.

The kingdom bought 50,000 tons of Russian wheat at $289.90 a ton, said Mohamad Malahmeh, head of the ministry's tenders department. The remaining quantity was bought at between $289.90 a ton and $290.90 a ton from other sources.

Egypt's main state wheat buyer, the General Authority for Supply Commodities, bought 180,000 tons of Russian wheat in a tender Thursday, GASC vice chairman Nomani Nomani told reporters in Cairo the same day. It was the country's first wheat purchase since Russia banned cereal sales in August.
