NEW DELHI/SEOUL. The result of the current tender from South Korea has been announced and the country has purchased significantly less sesame seeds than planned. Contrary to the fears of market players, however, exporters from India were able to gain a decisive share.

Indian exporters' share of the tender totals 6,900 mt, more than two-thirds of the actual quantity purchased.
