The markets for raw materials have become global, international markets, with fewer and fewer trade restrictions in place. This is partly due to the increased number of players, including the emerging economies. However, a plethora of international funds has also greatly increased the markets’ volatility.

This means that for consumers of raw materials in the Feed, Food and Fuel industries, a company’s purchasing policy is of prime importance. A good purchasing policy can make the difference between profit and loss.

In this regard, Vanden Avenne Commodities can fulfil an important function for its clients by making its extensive market knowledge and information network available to them.

Combined with our trading team’s many years of experience, this market information is also translated into advice for the customer. This means that based on the purchasing profile of each individual customer, tailored personal advice can be offered in consultation with the customer.
