Egypt: Grain and Feed Update
FAS Cairo (Post) forecasts Egypt’s wheat imports in marketing year (MY) 2022/23 (July – June) at 11.0 MMT, down from the previous marketing year estimate of 11.5 MMT. Egypt was able to secure a steady supply of wheat through diversification of wheat origins whether through tenders or implementing direct purchasing of wheat from several countries. Egypt’s wheat production is likely to remain unchanged from the previous marketing year. Egypt’s corn production expanded in response to high prices; similarly, rice production increased as planted area increased. Consequently, both corn and rice imports are forecast lower.
