Egypt’s GASC bought 300,000t of wheat from the Ukraine, Romania and France at a little over US$360/t cost and freight, with the lowest Russian offer still a few dollars from working.  Jordan bought 60,000t of wheat and promptly retendered for another 120,000t. French exporters seem intent on clearing all the bins.
