Japan offers to buy 114,783 tonnes food wheat via tender

    TOKYO, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Japan's Ministry of Agriculture sought to buy 114,783 tonnes of
food-quality wheat from the United States, Canada and Australia in a regular tender that will
close late 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 majority of the grain for milling
via tenders typically issued thrice a month.
