Tender is a success for Indian exporters

The result of last week's sesame seed tender was quite positive for Indian suppliers. South Korea had wanted to purchase a total of 3,000 mt of sesame seeds through this tender. Indian exporters were awarded a total of 1,800 mt, and companies from Nigeria and Pakistan were also able to secure 600 mt each. The selling prices of the tender winners range from USD 1,620/mt to USD 1,698/mt.
