Glencore acquired Mercury Commodities

Glencore Agriculture U.K. acquired Mercury Commodities, a United Kingdom based animal feed product supplier.


Glencore Agriculture U.K. has completed the full acquisition of Mercury Commodities, a U.K.-based animal feed product supplier. The new transaction added an international deep-water terminal and storage facilities on the Isle of Portland, England. James Maw, Glencore Agriculture U.K.’s managing director, said that the new acquisition means the company now offers a full range of animal feed ingredients.

He added that the existing 50,000 tonnes of modern storage and handling facilities at Portland also offered a highly responsive export route for farmers in southern England, to take advantage of any trade opportunities for wheat or barley.

With the first wholly owned portside facilities for Glencore Agriculture U.K., the Portland site will give the company a new platform for the import of animal feeds from Glencore Agriculture’s global crop processing facilities.
