France's Wheat Shipments to Algeria Are Seen 15% Higher

Oct. 10 (Bloomberg) -- France shipped 4.6 million metric tons of wheat to Algeria in the 2011-2012 season, 15% more than a year earlier, according to France Export Cereales.

“We export to Algeria 20 to 25 percent of our annual wheat production, it’s a very important market for us,” Jean-Pierre Langlois Berthelot, the Paris-based grain-export lobby’s president, said in an interview yesterday in Algiers, the Algerian capital.

Soft wheat made up 80 percent of the shipments, and the rest was the durum variety, he said.

Algeria is Africa’s second-largest wheat importer after Egypt, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data.
