A group of Israeli private buyers has issued an international tender to purchase 30,000 tonnes of feed wheat, 30,000 tonnes of corn (maize) and 10,000 tonnes of the feed grain sorghum, European traders said on Monday.
All the grain should be sourced from Europe.
Bidding deadline was Wednesday, December 21.
The tender sought shipment of 20,000 tonnes of wheat and 10,000 tonnes of corn between January 20 to February 10, 2012.
Shipment of 10,000 tonnes of wheat, 20,000 tonnes of corn and the 10,000 tonnes of sorghum was sought between February 20 to Mar10, 2012.
Traders tipped Black Sea region grain to win the business.
In the last reported Israeli wheat and corn tender on November 23, a group of private buyers purchased a total 100,000 tonnes of corn, feed wheat and feed barley all thought likely to come from Ukraine.
Ukraine, a traditional corn and wheat supplier to Israel, has been greatly expanding sales to the Middle East in past weeks after cancelling grain export restrictions in October.
