ABU DHABI, Sept 22 Egypt's state grain buyer,
the General Authority for Supply Commodities (GASC), has amended
its tender booklet to reflect the country's change on ergot
fungus policy to a tolerance level of 0.05 percent, it said on
GASC's tender booklet is the document outlining terms and
wheat specifications for its purchase tenders.
The country reversed its controversial zero-tolerance policy
on the common grain fungus on Wednesday after the policy had all
but blocked Egypt's access to global wheat.
Egypt, the world's largest wheat buyer, is tapping the
global grain market for wheat to be shipped Oct. 21-31, having
failed in its three precious tenders.
