Saudi Grains Organization (SAGO) has announced its seventh tender for the year 2020 to import 720 000 t of feed barley to be supplied during the period of January - February 2021.
His Excellency Eng. Ahmad A. Al-Fares, Governor of SAGO, stated that the amount specified in the tender is distributed to 12 shipments; eight shipments to be delivered to the Kingdom’s ports on the Red Sea with an amount of 480 000 t, and four shipments to the Kingdom’s ports on the Arabian Gulf with an amount of 240 000 t.
H.E. said that this tender comes as an extension to the Kingdom’s efforts to meet the local demand for feed barley and maintain its strategic reserve, as preparations are made to enable the private sector to import barley in implementation of the Council of Ministers Resolution and the State’s direction towards increasing the private sector’s contribution to the Saudi economy according to Vision 2030. H.E. also pointed out that SAGO has contracted to import five million t since the beginning of this year.
