WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - Canadian grain handler Richardson International Limited said on Thursday that it has received approval from Canada's Competition Bureau to close its C$800-million ($808 million) purchase of some country elevators, equity in a port grain terminal and processing plants from Glencore International PLC (GLEN.L: Quote).

Richardson said it plans to close the transaction, which involves some assets Glencore acquired in its takeover of Viterra Inc this month, as soon as possible in 2013.
