LEADING GRAIN TRADING COMPANY IN BALTICS

The routine

There is nothing that cannot be solved. This has been one of our key principles since 2006, when we started trading in cereals, pulses and oilseeds on a global scale. Every day we trade at the CME, MATIFF and Euronext, analyse market data and share insights with loyal partners. We create and offer unique financial risk management instruments to Lithuanian farmers.

The team

Without a doubt, this is one of our company’s strongest assets. Although small, yet tight-knit group of people, we are exceptionally effective in performance. We love our work, feel unfading passion for trading and have genuine respect for our colleagues and partners. This has led to our reputation as a trustworthy and dynamic organization in the global market.
