Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Iraq is tendering for 50,000 metric tons of wheat for a second time, with bids due by Oct. 10, according to a notice on the website of the ministry of trade.
The wheat can be from all origins, it said today.
The original tender was issued Aug. 24, with a bid deadline of Sept. 6, and was later canceled, Amer Abdel Aziz, spokesman for the country’s Grain Board, said Sept. 14. He didn’t give a reason for the cancellation.
