Tunisia buys durum wheat in tender, volume unclear, traders say

Tunisia’s state grains agency is believed to have purchased durum wheat in an international tender which closed on Thursday, European traders said.

Tonnage bought was initially unclear but was thought to be close to the 100,000 tonnes sought in the tender.

One consignment was said to have been bought from trading house Casillo at an estimated $680.67 a tonne c&f, another from Casillo at $685.89 a tonne c&f, one from Amber at $677.29 a tonne c&f and one from Viterra at $683.09 a tonne c&f.

The tender had sought four consignments of about 25,000 tonnes. Shipment was between Nov. 1 and Dec. 20, depending on origins supplied.
