Tunisia’s state grains agency has issued an international tender to purchase 75,000 tonnes of durum wheat, 50,000 tonnes of soft wheat and 50,000 tonnes of feed barley, European traders said on Wednesday.
The tender closes on Thursday, Oct. 12, they said.
The grains can be sourced from optional origins.
The durum was sought in three 25,000 tonne consignments for shipment between Dec. 15, 2017, and Jan. 20, 2018, depending on origin, they said.
The milling wheat and barley were both sought in two 25,000 tonne consignments for shipment between Nov. 25 and Dec. 20, 2017, also depending on origin, they said.
European wheat futures fell on Tuesday to the lowest levels in nearly three weeks as a firm euro exacerbated an already difficult export outlook amid stiff competition from the Black Sea region.
