EU grants minimal export refunds for barley

By FWi staff

BRUSSELS today continued its non-aggressive approach to grain exports by granting only limited export refunds for barley.

Commission officials received export refund bids almost 450,000 tonnes of barley at the Management Committees weekly meeting this afternoon.

But refunds were granted for only 17,000 tonnes at ECU 31.45 — the minimum rate applied for.

Most of the bids were placed in France.
