Commodity Management BlogInnovative Ideas and Thought Leadership for Volatile Commodity Marketplace
Over the past decade, Brazil has grown to be the largest economy in Latin America and a major player in global agricultural production. As the world’s largest exporter of sugar, it produces around 20% of the world’s supply annually. In addition, Brazil is a leading exporter of chicken, coffee and soy beans. A significant portion of the world’s economy is dependent on the continued success of agricultural exports, and industry leaders are recognizing the need for advanced commodity trading and risk management (CTRM) solutions that help maintain a competitive advantage by managing volatility and optimizing supply chain efficiency.
In an effort to support the growing need for advanced CTRM solutions in the Brazilian market, Triple Point recently hosted an agriculture-focused Commodity Management lunch in São Paulo. More than 30 regional industry executives from companies including Algar Agro, ADM, BRF Brazil Foods, and Noble Group gathered at the stunning Bar Des Arts for an afternoon of presentations, networking, and fine dining.
Triple Point executives teamed up with Guilherme Nastari of DATAGRO and Eduardo Barros of Accenture to give a complete perspective of current agriculture market trends and Commodity Management best practices. Attendees learned how gaining a transparent, integrated view of physical and financial position in real-time enables them to maximize the impact of volatility on the bottom line. The event was very successful with positive feedback from all who attended.
