Jordan makes no purchase in tender for 120,000 tonnes barley

A new tender had been expected after Jordan made no purchase in its previous wheat tender

HAMBURG, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Jordan’s state grains buyer made no purchase in an international tender to buy 120,000 tonnes of feed barley which closed on Thursday, traders said.

Three trading companies took part: Glencore, GTCS and Aston. A new tender is expected to be issued soon, they said.

Jordan has struggled to make purchases in a series of wheat and barley tenders in recent months, with traders saying uncertainty about changed quality controls and payment terms had reduced participation by major grain exporting houses
