Meditrade bought 18,500 tons of sunflower oil at $1,189.98 a ton from Nidera and 15,000 tons at the same price from Louis Dreyfus, the traders said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they aren’t authorized to comment to the media. The company purchased 6,000 tons of soybean oil at 7,310 Egyptian pounds ($1,205) a ton from Alex Seeds and an equal amount at the same price from Wataneya, they said.
