Egypt also purchased 60,000 tons of Ukrainian wheat ($152.2 per ton) and 60,000 tons of Romanian wheat ($252.25 per ton). Supplies will be made on September 1-10.
This month Egypt has bought wheat from three Black Sea countries. In the middle of July Egypt purchased 30,000 tons of wheat from Russia, Ukraine and Romania.
