Spring Market Seminar 2018: Forecasting the future
Buying ingredients and managing your spend require you to make many predictions. Shifts in consumer demand affect the decisions of ingredient buyers and sellers alike. New food safety requirements limit supplier choices. Changes in the transportation landscape may push freight costs higher. These and many other factors add complexity to supply chains. Gaining an early glimpse into elements that will impact commodities will help you make more informed and effective decisions.
Join us for our fourth annual Spring Market Seminar and let McKeany-Flavell’s experts show you more than a peek at which factors will shape how you buy ingredients—such as Corn Sweeteners.
Corn Sweeteners Back in 1997, ethanol was a backburner issue for most wet millers. Few expected the industry transformation caused by the Renewable Fuel Standard eight years later. Some more significant changes may lie ahead, with bio-industry products becoming the new ethanol, more competition from dry milled products, and the renegotiation of NAFTA. Learn how these changes will impact your supply of corn derivatives.
Other commodities/topics to be covered include Sugar, Edible Oils, Cocoa & Chocolate, Dairy, Transportation, and Risk Management.
