Egypt to attract SGS expertise wheat

Egypt intends to attract Swiss company SGS (provides services for the inspection, verification and certification) to test the grain imported into the country, reports Bloomberg referring to the RNS message.

This should ease the conditions for the traders who are often faced with changes in grain supply conditions in Egypt, said the agency.

SGS will check the supplied wheat to Egypt in the departure and arrival ports, said the representative of the Ministry of Agriculture of Egypt Hamed Abdel-Dayem. Previously, this control is carried out by representatives of the Egyptian services.

Egypt - one of the world's largest importers of wheat. This year, the government of Egypt has twice introduced restrictions on imports of wheat, which contains the fungus ergot. Last week, Egypt lifted the ban on the import of wheat to ergot and its contents made within international standards (0,05%).
