HAMBURG: Jordan's state grains buyer has issued a new international tender to purchase 120,000 tonnes of animal feed barley, European traders said on Tuesday. The deadline for submission of price offers in the tender is Aug. 12.
A new tender had been expected after Jordan had made no purchase in its previous tender for 120,000 tonnes of barley on Thursday in which only one trading house participated. Jordan has cancelled several barley tenders in recent weeks amid low participation from trading houses.
Shipment in the new tender is sought in a series of possible combinations in 60,000 tonne consignments, traders said. Possible shipment combinations are Oct. 16-31, Nov. 1-15, Nov. 16-30 and Dec. 1-15. Jordan has also issued a separate tender for 120,000 tonnes of milling wheat closing on Aug. 11.
