Ukraine out from Egypt's 2013 list of wheat suppliers



EGYPT will remove Ukraine from its 2013 list of wheat suppliers after Kiev said it would halt exports from December 1.


According to the government's main buyer on Thursday (Nov 15), the decision is bad news for Ukraine, which has angered some of its foreign buyers by sending mixed messages on exports since a drought that decimated this year's crop, and may mean it struggles to sell to Egypt in the future even when it has available stocks.
