The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) on November 16, 2017 will consider the issue of a loan of $125 million for Olam International Ltd.

According to the report, the funds will be used to finance the search, processing, storage and transportation of agricultural products such as nuts, corn, dairy products and dried vegetables.

The total project cost is $185 million.
