NEW DELHI. Indian sesame seed traders were able to win a large share of the South Korean sesame tender this week, while exports to Europe are only slowly increasing. The summer crop, meanwhile, is expected to yield a promising result.

India wins the bid

With the exception of 600 mt of sesame seeds from Niger, Indian exporters are virtually the sole winners of the current sesame seed tender. They are authorised to ship a total of 11,400 mt of sesame seeds to South Korea. Considering the good summer crop and the faltering demand from overseas, this is a ray of hope for the market.
