The total requirements for local consumption of wheat flour used to be met by imports until the setting up of a local milling company, Les Moulins de la Concorde, in the late eighties. With the availability of locally-milled flour, STC reduced the volume of flour in its tenders by 50% of the total requirements. The other 50% is reserved for supply by Les Moulins de la Concorde in case it has not been the lowest tenderer but accepts to align its own price on the lowest obtained in the tender process.

The last tender exercise for the supply of 51,800 MT of flour for period 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2017 was launched on 26 September 2016.
