CAIRO, EGYPT — Egypt’s General Authority on Supply Commodities (GASC) on July 18 announced it has removed a top supplier of wheat from its list of approved sellers, according to a report fromReuters. The decision followed multiple delays in the delivery of wheat cargoes, including failure to deliver on two 60,000-tonne cargoes in May.

Reuters identified the supplier as Dubai-based AOS, which supplied approximately 20% of Egypt’s annual wheat requirements.

In addition to AOS, an official with GASC told Reuters that Egypt’s Union has been removed from the list of approved suppliers.
