Who we are

Viterra Rus has been successfully operating in Russia for over 17 years and is one of the leading grain exporters on the Russian market.

We started our trading activities in May 2004 when International Grain Company LLC (MZK) was registered. In a short period, IGC (MZK) became one of Russia's leading grain exporters. Our business is actively developing its assets/logistical supply chain to increase grain throughput and efficiency of operations.

As part of the global Glencore Agricultural business, we changed our name to Glencore Agriculture MZK LLC in May 2017. Following the rebranding of Glencore Agriculture's global business operations in 2020, we rebranded to "Viterra Rus" in June 2021.

Currently, Viterra Rus:

  • Is one of the leading grain exporters on the Russian market;

  • Has field-offices in the main grain-producing regions: Krasnodar, Stavropol, Rostov, Voronezh and Saratov, originating grain from most of the Russian regions;

We employ approximately 700 employees, including in our industrial assets and joint ventures.
