NIBULON: Best Rural Economic Investment Partner Ukraine 2018

The story of NIBULON, the Ukraine’s largest agricultural producer, investor and exporter, is rooted in perseverance and resilience — and its co-founders’ ability to see challenges as opportunities for growth and shared benefits. The company name pays homage to the founders’ home cities – NIkolaev, BUdapest and LONdon – and underscores its position as a major player in international markets. NIBULON was founded in the year that the Ukraine became an independent state – 1991 – and it’s been a driving force in the country’s economic growth ever since. NIBULON started with just five employees, and now has over 7,000. Since its inception, it has invested more than $1.6 bn in the Ukraine economy, helping the country to survive the economic crisis, ease unemployment and combat inflation. NIBULON began by developing agricultural land to efficiently produce grain, but the economic crisis and political uncertainty brought shortages of fuel and resources. With the perspective that challenges are nothing more than opportunities, NIBULON expanded into new markets to solve its logistical headaches. The company now has a diversified portfolio ranging from logistics to livestock. NIBULON tends nearly 83,000 hectares of agricultural land and operates 43 branches in 12 regions in the Ukraine. The judging panel was impressed with the company’s foreign activities, which in 2015 delivered $8.2m in global economic contracts. The judges congratulate NIBULON as the winner of the 2018 award for Best Rural Economic Investment Partner (Ukraine).
