Originally announced in spring 2020, the initial agreement between ZGC and Bunge included 35 operating assets.

To help secure regulatory approval, certain Bunge assets and Consolidated Grain and Barge Co., ZGC’s affiliate, assets were selected for divestiture and sold to Viserion Grain, LLC.

The facilities ultimately required by the Department of Justice to be divested were adjusted slightly from the list published this past spring.

The Bunge assets divested include Shawneetown, IL; Huffman, AR; Osceola, AR (Riverside and Landside); Helena, AR; Lake Providence, LA; Caruthersville, MO; McGregor, IA; and Lettsworth, LA.

The divested Consolidated Grain and Barge Co. asset is its Savanna, IL facility.
