Egypt buys 1.15 m tons of local wheat since April 15- cabinet

Cairo: Egypt has bought 1.15 million tonnes of domestic wheat since the start of the procurement season on April 15, the cabinet said on Saturday.

Egypt, the world's largest wheat importer, is planning to buy 4 million tonnes of Egyptian wheat in the 2016 season.

The agriculture ministry said last week that all necessary precautions had been taken to avoid the selling of cheaper imported wheat to the government during the procurement season and falsely labelling it as Egyptian wheat.
