RIYADH: Saudi Arabia has issued an international tender to purchase 540,000 tonnes of barley, main state grain buyer the Saudi Grains Organisation (SAGO) said on Thursday. The deadline for receiving offers is September 29.
The tender seeks barley for delivery during November and December in nine individual consignments of 60,000 tonnes, Ahmed Al Fares, Governor of SAGO, said. The cargoes can be offered by trading companies up to 10 per cent larger or smaller than 60,000 tonnes. Some 360,000 tonnes will be for delivery to Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea ports and 180,000 tonnes to the kingdom’s Gulf ports. SAGO was previously known as the General Silos and Flour Mills Organisation.
