Glencore buys stake in grain hub

Commodities giant Glencore has bought an interest in a deep sea grain export terminal in Russia. It has entered into a 50-50 joint venture agreement with Ukraine’s Kernel to buy the interest from EFKO Group. Taman, on Russia’s Black Sea coast, is close to Russia’s main grain producing region, and Glencore said the acquisition will enable it to reach more customers across the region.
