Saudi Arabia to start next phase of flour mill privatisation

DUBAI, July 28 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's state grain buyer SAGO said on Sunday the next phase of the sale of its flour mills, when pre-qualified bidders would perform due diligence and present financial offers, would start on Wednesday.

Saudi SAGO accepted applications for pre-qualification in 2018 and has since selected potential bidders.

The sale of Saudi's flour milling sector is part of a wide-reaching overhaul of its economy and has drawn interest from some of the world's largest agribusiness firms.
