March 6 (Bloomberg) -- United Grain Co., a state-owned Russian grain trader, will send a second shipment of wheat to Nicaragua as humanitarian aid.
The cargo of 24,800 metric tons of the grain is expected to arrive in the Latin American country in April, the Moscow-based company said today in an e-mailed statement. An initial shipment of 25,600 tons arrived in November.
United Grain said it plans to ship as much as 100,000 tons of wheat to Nicaragua in total by the end of this year.
