Egypt, which is generally the world’s largest wheat importer, is seeing a spike in bread and flour costs as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which cut off access to lower-cost Black Sea wheat.

In the aftermath of the Black Sea crisis, India, the world’s second largest wheat grower, has emerged as a major provider of the crop to a number of nations who are experiencing shipping interruptions and sky-high grain prices.

Although Egypt has traditionally purchased Russian and Ukrainian wheat, the sources added that India is prepared to assist Cairo by delivering the grain. The sources did not want to be identified due to official constraints.
