Egypt’s state grain buyer, the General Authority for Supply Commodities (GASC), said on Saturday it was seeking at least 100,000 tons of white medium-grain rice in a tender.

The rice will be for arrival by Nov. 30, GASC said. GASC is seeking rice offers on a cost, insurance and freight basis with a deadline for bids on Oct. 12.

Offers should be for a maximum of 10 percent broken rice content. Egypt’s government said earlier on Saturday it would look to import 500,000 tons of rice.
