Japan offers to buy 113,138 tonnes of food wheat via tender

TOKYO, Feb 12 (Reuters) - Japan's Ministry of Agriculture is seeking to buy a total of 113,138 tonnes of food-quality wheat from the United States, Canada and Australia in a regular tender that will close late on Thursday.

Japan, the world's sixth-biggest wheat importer, keeps a tight grip on imports of the country's second-most important staple after rice and buys the majority of the grain for milling via tenders typically issued three times a month.
