Grain

Kernel manages the most extensive grain supply chain in the Black Sea region, an essential link between the farming sector and the international market. Buying from thousands of farmers throughout Ukraine and Southern Russia, Kernel originates and exports millions of tons of farm produce over each season. Our supply chain is based on more than two hundred locations across all Ukraine and southern Russia and extensive knowledge of every detail of the grain merchandising process. Logistics is fully under the control of Kernel, from acquiring supply at the farm gate to sales and distribution at grain terminals at the ports. We market and sell the goods essentially in bulk on the international market, where we typically deliver to our customers either free on board Black Sea or charter vessels and deliver directly to the country of final destination.

Kernel is a leading exporter of grain produced in the Black Sea region, selling on the international market in the range of 10% of all grain exported by Ukraine and 4% of Russia's export surplus.
