Egypt returns the content requirements of horns and refuse of wheat from Canada and Poland
a few months after the tender scandals with the contents of the ergot in the wheat, French (and not only) origin again reminded myself of the Quarantine service of Egypt.
this time she refused to accept two cargo canadian and Polish wheat total volume of 40 thousand tons due to the fact that the contents of the ergot in the grain exceeds the zero indicator. The owners of the grain are the company Venus International Five Star Flour Mills Co.
a cargo Ship with party of 10 thousand tons of canadian wheat since the beginning of may awaiting unloading in the port of Suez. The contents of the ergot in the wheat of canadian origin is 0.04 %, Polish – 0,02 %. In both cases, the amount of ergot is within the permissible international standards of 0.05 %, which, by the way, in the beginning of the year were approved by the Ministry of agriculture and Ministry of supply of Egypt.
the Situation that now exists, demonstrates that, contrary to the given global traders the promises, the Egyptian government has not brought its domestic legislation in terms of determining grain quality in line with international requirements and standards. There remains the misunderstanding and differences in interpretation between normative documents and Quarantine service of the country on the one hand and the ministries of agriculture and supply as well as the state Corporation GASC with the second. Most likely, traders will once again be included in the price of wheat risks of refusal to supply.
