Rabobank is proud to advise Zen-Noh Grain Corporation (ZGC), a subsidiary of the National Federation of Agricultural Cooperative Associations of Japan (Zen-Noh) and a premier supplier of quality grains for global export markets, in acquiring 35 operating U.S. grain origination elevators along the Mississippi River from Bunge North America. 

ZGC currently exports corn, soybeans, sorghum, wheat, and byproducts from its state-of-the art export elevator located at mile 164 on the Mississippi River in Convent, Louisiana to Japan and other global markets. The acquisition will support ZGC’s ability to continue sourcing a stable supply of grains, oilseeds, and feed ingredients for Japan and other destinations by strengthening its origination across a broader footprint in the United States.
