CAIRO- Egypt's state grains buyer, the General Authority for Supply Commodities (GASC,) on Wednesday received offers for wheat in an international purchase tender with two shipment periods in September, traders said.
GASC said it was seeking an unspecified quantity of wheat for shipment Sept. 11-20 and Sept 21-30 with payment using a 180-day credit facility.
The lowest offer presented was by Solaris at $212.10 for 60,000 tonnes of Russian grain for either shipment period.
No purchase has yet been made and the tender results are expected later on Wednesday.
