The offer was presented by Glencore.

Egypt, the world’s largest wheat buyer, said on Monday that it was seeking an unspecified quantity for shipment on Oct. 1-10.

The results of the tender, carried out by state buyer the General Authority for Supply Commodities (GASC), are expected later on Tuesday.
