Turkey to import 330,000 tons of duty-free EU wheat

Turkey’s grain board will allow private companies to import 330,000 metric tons of duty-free European Union wheat this year as part of measures to ease price swings in the domestic market. The licenses cover 230,000 tons of milling wheat and 100,000 tons of durum, the Ankara-based board,said Thursday.

With a strong harvest, Turkey is expected to meet the overwhelming majority of its own needs and to export 4 million tons of wheat in the 12 months ending in June 2011, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported this month.
