Kenya Will Buy 200,000 Tons of U.S. Wheat, Daily Nation Reports

Nov. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Kenya is expected to buy 200,000 metric tons of wheat from the U.S. over the next year after Russia banned exports of the grain, the Daily Nation reported, citing U.S. Ambassador Michael Ranneberger.

The east African country received a 50,000-ton wheat shipment from the U.S. at Mombasa port yesterday, the Nairobi-based newspaper said.

The U.S. expects a “record” amount of wheat purchases from east Africa nations this year, the Daily Nation cited Ranneberger as saying.
