Pakistan’s flour millers bought around 100,000 tons of wheat from the Black Sea region this week, while importers in Bangladesh booked 50,000 tons.
Importers in Pakistan paid $269.50 a ton, including cost and freight, for two cargoes of wheat with 11.5% protein, traders said. One cargo is scheduled to be shipped in October and the other is for arrival between October 15 and November 15.
Buyers in Bangladesh paid $255 a ton for 50,000 tons of wheat with 10.5% protein. It is due for shipment in the second half of September.
“Bangladesh is keen on buying some high-protein wheat as well for October shipment,” said a Singapore-based trader. “They are looking at 70,000 tons with 12.5% protein.”
