New Delhi:Global trading firm Cargill has emerged as the lowest bidder in a wheat import tender issued by India’s State Trading Corp, offering 65,000 tonnes of grain at $459.90 per tonne, trade officials said on Monday.
Glencore offered 2,00,000 tonnes of wheat of the highest quantity to be delivered at two Indian ports for $462-465 per tonne, traders said.
