Turkey's state grain board TMO has extended an international tender to purchase 400,000 tonnes of milling wheat

  

HAMBURG- Turkey's state grain board TMO has extended an international tender to purchase 400,000 tonnes of milling wheat this week to include offers for white wheat, traders said on Wednesday.

The tender which closes on Friday, Jan. 22, had previously sought red milling wheat only. gra

“The change could allow wheat from more origins to be offered in the tender at a time when wheat from Turkey’s big supplier Russia is more expensive and faces an upcoming export tax,” one trader said.
