HAMBURG- Jordan's state grains buyer purchased a final total of 60,000 tonnes of hard milling wheat to be sourced from optional origins in a tender which closed on Wednesday, traders said.

It was all bought from trading house Cerealcom Dolj at an estimated $365.00 a tonne c&f for shipment in the second half of January 2022, they said.

No more purchases were expected despite negotiations continuing after the first purchase, traders said.

The high number of five trading companies participated in the tender.

Along with Cerealcom Dolj, participants were believed to be CHS which offered an estimated $376.75, Cargill $384.17, Ameropa $370.40 and Nibulon $379.00 all per tonne c&f, they said.

Jordan has cancelled several wheat tenders in recent weeks among low participation by trading houses.

The tender is seeking optional-origin wheat for shipment in several periods in 2022 between mid-January and mid-March.

A new tender is expected to be issued in coming days closing on Oct. 27 seeking shipment in March and April 2022, traders said.
