HAMBURG- Jordan's state grain buyer has issued an international tender to buy 120,000 tonnes of milling wheat which can be sourced from optional origins, European traders said on Wednesday.

The deadline for submission of price offers in the tender is Feb. 1.

A new tender had been expected by traders after Jordan made no purchase in its previous tender for 120,000 tonnes of wheat which closed on Tuesday. 

Shipment in the new tender is sought in a series of possible combinations in 60,000 tonne consignments. Possible shipment combinations are between July 1-15, July 16-31, Aug. 1-15 and Aug. 16-31.

Jordan on Wednesday also issued a separate tender to purchase 120,000 tonnes of animal feed barley closing on Jan. 26.
