“After comprehensive analysis of its grain and oil business in the Central and Eastern Europe, Cargill decided to stop development of materials for farmers and leave these kinds of activity by late may 2016. That will have an impact on Cargill’s business in Hungary, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Ukraine, Bulgaria and Poland”, reads the message at the company’s website.

Going forward, the company will focus its attention on its grain and oilseeds origination, merchandizing and trading activities in these markets.
