Tunisia’s state grains agency bought 100,000 tons of milling wheat on Wednesday, more than the 92,000 tons it had sought in an international tender, European traders were quoted as saying by Reuters.
The agency bought four consignments of 25,000 tons, paying $190.99, $193.00, $193.25 and $193.74 per ton on a cost and freight (C&F) basis, the traders said.
Shipment would be in several periods in September and October.
The tender had initially called for three consignments of 25,000 tons and one of 17,000 tons.
Tunisia made no purchase in a separate tender seeking 50,000 tons of animal feed barley, with prices seen as too high, the traders said.
