Japan offers to buy 144,385 tonnes food wheat via tender

31.08.2016

Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture is seeking to buy a total of 144,385 tonnes of food quality wheat from the United States and Canada in a regular tender that will close late on Thursday.

Japan, the world’s sixth-biggest wheat importer, keeps a tight grip on imports of the country’s second most important staple after rice and buys the majority of the grain for milling via tenders typically issued three times a month.
