The AFIP announced that they will auction more than 4 thousand tons of broken corn from an operation carried out by the Agency.
The Federal Administration of Public Revenues (AFIP) will hold an auction of broken corn that is in the hands of the General Directorate of Customs (DGA). These are two lots with more than four thousand tons of broken corn in bulk that will be auctioned in the Buenos Aires town of San Pedro on February 10, from an operation where an export of false operators was dismantled.
According to what the AFIP communicated, the merchandise that the DGA offers for auction is all that is not of interest for donation, and aims to free up space in the different warehouses, to also obtain extra income for the State. The auction will be held online through the Banco Ciudad website, where you can see the merchandise of the different lots with the base price and a description of each one of them on the site.
The mechanics of the auction will be virtual and buyers from anywhere in the country can participate, but the cargo must be removed in the San Pedro Customs area
The agency recalled that, last December, Customs began to auction raw materials from merchandise seized in various procedures. In this case, it will be more than 4,100 tons of broken corn that were seized in San Pedro in November during an operation carried out in conjunction with the General Tax Directorate (DGI) in which the fraudulent export to Uruguay of the equivalent of 160 trucks was stopped.
The mechanics of the auction will be virtual and buyers from anywhere in the country can participate, but the cargo must be withdrawn in the San Pedro Customs area. “The process to participate is simple, agile and dynamic. You must register as a user through the Banco Ciudad website, sign up for the auction in which you want to participate no later than 48 hours before, and transfer the deposit. Once the registration has been confirmed by the Bank, bidding will begin on the day and time scheduled for the auction. The terms and conditions of each auction are published on the auction page of Banco Ciudad” detailed the AFIP statement in which they describe the mechanism.

Cracked corn is obtained by chopping the grain and can be used as an input in balanced feed and for raising livestock and poultry. The entity stressed that it is presented as an opportunity for those involved in the agricultural industry.
The AFIP had communicated days ago that, thanks to four operations, they had seized 2,464 tons of grain for “abusive marketing” in different parts of the country: in the Province of Buenos Aires the same were carried out in Adolfo Gonzáles Chavez, Laprida and Coronel Suarez, where more than 2,000 tons of wheat, barley and corn were seized. In Córdoba and Mendoza, the rest were carried out, obtaining 289 tons of broken corn that were confiscated.
The agency headed by Mercedes Marcó del Pont stressed that the strengthening of control and oversight tasks on the production and transfer of grains, “accompanied by coordination with the federal security forces on routes and the joint work between the DGI and the Customs in the ports allowed the AFIP, between September 2021 and January 2022, to dismantle abusive maneuvers in the commercialization of 31,000 tons of agricultural products, which is equivalent to more than 1,030 trucks with trailers.”
Finally, the agency also highlighted that the incorporation of new tools during 2021 introduced significant improvements in the inspection capacities of the agricultural sector. Among them, he mentions the use and processing of satellite images and the implementation of the electronic consignment note for the transfer of grains through the country’s routes.
