To move forward with its planned acquisition of Bunge North America, the Justice Department is demanding the Zen-Noh Grain Corporation divest nine grain elevators along the Mississippi River and its tributaries.

Viserion Grain, which has the backing of Pinnacle Management, is expected to take over the nine grain elevators in this divestiture.
