HAMBURG  Jordan's state grain buyer has issued a new international tender to purchase 120,000 tonnes of animal feed barley, European traders said on Friday.

The deadline for submission of price offers in the tender is April 28.

A new tender had been expected after Jordan had made no purchase in its previous tender for 120,000 tonnes of barley on Wednesday in which only one trading house participated.  

Shipment in the new tender is sought in a series of possible combinations in 60,000 tonne consignments, traders said.

Possible shipment combinations are Oct. 1-15, Oct 16-31, Nov. 1-15 and Nov. 16-30, the same periods as sought in Wednesday’s tender.
