Agrana Beteiligungs AG (AGR), the Austrian unit of German refiner Suedzucker AG (SZU), and London-based commodity trader ED&F Man Holdings Ltd. also are interested in buying the unit from Agricultural Bank of Greece (ATE) SA, the Athens-based newspaper reported, without saying how it got the information.
