Nafed finalises bidders

“Yesterday (Thursday), Nafed received a good response in the tenders with offers to supply at Tuticorin and Mumbai. Nafed very swiftly has issued confirmation to successful bidders last evening itself so that timely releases are made in the market,” an official statement said.

This time, Nafed insisted the quality and size of onion match the choice of Indian consumers who generally prefer medium sized onions whereas in overseas origins the sizes are bigger up to 80 mm, it said.
Co-operative Nafed on Friday said it has finalised bidders and issued orders for timely supply of 15,000 tonnes of imported onions, which will help boost domestic availability and check price rise.

Since the imported onions will be delivered at port cities, state governments have been asked to indent their quantity for faster dispatch of the commodity, it said.

Nafed plans to float regular tenders for supply of additional supplies of imported onions, it added.
