Jordan cancels tender for 100,000 tons barley

Selling interest among international trading houses to Jordan decreases due to strict inspections and payment conditions.

Published: Updated:

Jordan’s Ministry of Trade and Industry cancelled a tender for 100,000 tons of barley as no offers were made, a government source said on Wednesday.

The tender was for shipment in two 50,000 ton consignments in the first or second half of March 2016.

Jordan cancelled a wheat tender on Tuesday for 100,000 tons of wheat also due to a lack of offers.

Traders have said there is limited selling interest among international trading houses to Jordan due to concerns about strict inspections and payment conditions.

Jordan last bought barley on Sept. 16 when it purchased 50,000 tons of animal feed barley from optional origins in an international tender for up to 100,000 tons at $209 a ton, cost and freight.

A series of previous wheat and barley tenders from Jordan in August and September had ended without a purchase.
