2nd EU Food Tender

PARIS -- The European Union this week may set a date for a tender allocating a second tranche of food aid for Russia, an EU official said Tuesday.

"We are working on setting a date for the second tender. I hope this can be done at the upcoming cereals management committee on Thursday," said the official from the FEOGA, the EU fund that monitors the aid.

A member-country official said the item was on the agenda of the EU's grain-management committee meeting Thursday.

The EU signed a $500 million food package with Russia earlier this year.
