Riyadh, The Saudi Grains Organization (SAGO) announced today a tender to import 295,000 tons of wheat to be supplied during the period of May-June 2021.
Governor of SAGO Eng. Ahmad bin Abdulaziz Al-Fares stated that the amount specified in the tender is distributed to five ships; two ships to Jeddah Islamic Port, two ships to Yanbu Commercial Port and one ship to Jizan Port.
The Governor pointed out that this tender comes within the framework of SAGO’s plan to meet the local demand from milling companies and to maintain the reserve stock of wheat. He noted that SAGO earlier this year purchased 355,000 tons from Saudi investors abroad, in addition to announcing earlier this week the start date of the local wheat reception season, which is 04 April 2021, in order to further maintain the local stocks of wheat.
