NEW DELHI. Although Indian exporters were able to secure a large part of the tender, the hoped-for effect on market prices has failed to materialise. India is finding it increasingly difficult to hold its own against competition from African countries.

More than 11,000 mt come from India

Last week, the latest sesame seed tender from South Korea came to an end. Indian exporters again secured the bulk, while Pakistan came away empty-handed. Of the 12,000 mt, Indian traders were awarded a total of 11,100 mt. Another 600 mt came from Nigeria, while the remaining 300 mt were contributed by exporters from Tanzania.

Tender result, June 2022
