NEW DELHI. Compared to last year, significantly less sesame seeds were grown in India for the Kharif crop. With the arrival of the crops, there are again more offers in EU quality. Meanwhile, Indian exporters were able to win a large part of the last sesame seed tender.

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.
