The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), together with the Grain Alliance, Kernel, and Nibulon, has announced a $44 million investment in the development of grain export infrastructure in Ukraine.
The investment will be used to upgrade grain terminals, purchase new grain wagons, and implement digital technologies to improve supply chain efficiency. The project is expected to create new jobs and increase Ukraine’s competitiveness in the global grain market.
“USAID is proud to partner with the Grain Alliance, Kernel, and Nibulon to strengthen Ukraine’s agricultural sector and boost economic growth,” said USAID Mission Director Susan Fritz. “This investment will help Ukraine to meet growing global demand for high-quality grains and improve the livelihoods of farmers across the country.”
The Grain Alliance, Kernel, and Nibulon are leading Ukrainian agribusiness companies with extensive experience in grain production, processing, and export. The companies have expressed their commitment to sustainable agriculture and responsible business practices, and have implemented a range of initiatives to support local communities and protect the environment.
The investment is part of USAID’s broader efforts to support economic development and reform in Ukraine, and to promote sustainable agriculture and food security.
