Soufflet Negoce SA v. The Court upheld the GAFTA Board of Appeal award which found that the provision in the contract, whereby any notice received after hours on a gafat day would be deemed to have been received the following day, applied only in the case of resales and repurchases which was not the case here.
The commercial reality was that, in those cases, it is particularly important that notices up or down the chain are served without delay because intermediary sellers or buyers in the chain may otherwise be prejudiced if the notice is not received in time to be passed on. The Sellers argued that, as the notice was served after hours, it was deemed to have been received the following day, on Tuesday 14 December, pursuant to the deemed notice provision in clause 19 and was therefore out of time.
The GAFTA Board of Appeal found in favour of the Buyers, holding that the deemed notice provision in clause 19 did not apply and that, under clause 8, the Buyers had until midnight on 13 December to serve the notice claiming an extension.

In particular, under clause 6, vessel nomination notices in the case of resales had to be passed on, where possible, by telephone and then confirmed on the same day in accordance with clause 19, the Notices clause. Instead, it construed the disputed wording in the context of the contract as a whole, this being more likely to result in a construction that accords with what the parties can objectively be taken to have agreed.
