The authorities have taken note of the proposals made Tuesday by the bidders in connection with the call for tenders for the supply and delivery of 53,100 metric tons of flour type A and type B for the year 2014.
Type A is known as the French flour, although its origin is not necessarily French, used to produce bread. While flour B says "Australian", even if it does not come necessarily from Australia, used to make faratas or pizzas.
Eight bids were received. This is the Indian company Shri Lal Mahal leads with the best proposal. It offers refined flour type A at $ 432 per tonne for the housing of 50 kilos, refined flour type B at $ 426 per tonne for the housing of 50 kilos and 428 dollars per ton of refined flour type B housing 25 kilos. In terms of whole-wheat flour, the Indian company offers 426 dollars per tonne for type A housing 50 kilos and 422 dollars per tonne for type B housing 50 pounds.
The company Shri Lal Mahal Ltd. offers not only supply delivery to the warehouse of the STC. For landing in the port and transport to the warehouse STC, it takes $ 24 per metric ton. And even then, its proposed price is the lowest.
For example, adding $ 24, incurred by the STC at $ 432 per tonne, proposed by Shri Lal Mahal Ltd refined flour type A housing 50 pounds, the final price comes to $ 456 . Which is less than the best price of $ 532 received for the supply of 2013.
LMLC ranks second. Since flour is produced locally, the company will only move towards the warehouse STC and $ 24 are already included in the proposed price. So LMLC offers 463 dollars per tonne for refined flour type A housing 50 pounds, 469 dollars per tonne for refined flour type B for housing of 50 kilos and 469 dollars per ton of refined flour type B Housing 25 pounds. Regarding the wholemeal flour, LMLC offers 463 dollars per tonne for type A housing 50 pounds and the same price for the type B housing 50 pounds.
