The ECC also accepted the lowest bid from M/s Cereal Crop Trading LLC at a price of $372 per tonne for the supply of 130,000 tonnes at Karachi port for the shipment period from December 16, 2022, to February 8, 2023, in accordance with an earlier award.

It was not specified where the imported wheat would come from.
