Trading companies such as Bunge and China’s COFCO International have been hit by payment delays and additional costs of up to $ 15,000 a day as the renewed U.S. restrictions stifle the processing of transactions, trade sources said. Food, medicine and other humanitarian supplies are exempt from sanctions Washington re-imposed after U.S. President Donald Trump said he was walking away from a 2015 international deal over Iran's nuclear programme.
