NEW DELHI. Although the local markets in India, the so-called mandis, have been open again for some time now, traders hardly dare to go there due to the possible danger of infection. Instead...

..., exporters report that they ask couriers to bring samples of all potentially interesting products and then decide what and how much they want to buy. Overall, the market is rather quiet.

New tender at the end of July

In the coming months, price fluctuations should remain within limits, whereas they are currently last week's level. The good summer crop and additional imports from African growing countries ensure sufficient stocks, while export demand is low. Meanwhile, market players report another sesame seed tender from South Korea, which is to be announced at the end of July or the beginning of August, probably again for a volume of 9,000-10,000 metric tonnes. Traders are hopeful that the tender might be an occasion to raise prices again if shipments have to take place before the start of the winter harvest.
