Tunisia Said to Seek Four Cargoes of Milling Wheat, Three Durum

Tunisia’s state grains office is seeking to buy four cargoes of milling wheat and three of durum, each holding 25,000 metric tons, according to two traders with direct knowledge of the tender.

The office wants the shipments, depending on the origin, for delivery from Jan. 15 to Feb. 25, said the traders, who asked not to be named because they aren’t authorized to speak to the media. The deadline for bids is tomorrow, they said.

Durum is the hard variety of wheat used to make couscous, a staple dish in western North Africa.
