Webinar: H1 2021 Global Food Commodity Review

January 14, 2021

1 mins read

In this webinar, discover how to stay ahead of market trends and dynamics, particularly at a time of high uncertainty in food commodity markets. Explore a comprehensive view of the Mintec commodity prices covered, going beyond just reporting market events but also providing insights on what to look out for and prepare for the first half of 2021. Some of the key topics covered are:

  1. The weather has played a key role in global supply, particularly in those regions affected by droughts, floods and tropical storms. The La Nina weather pattern has caused droughts among Brazil's coffee heartlands, while also accelerating rainfall levels in Colombia.

     

  2. Speculation has been a key theme for the soft commodity markets, particularly  in light of  changing consumption patterns and supply gluts and/or shortages related to the global pandemic. Speculative forces are expected to remain a key driver going into 2021. This webinar will evaluate commodity markets that experienced significant price movements in the second half of 2020, including Arabica and cocoa, while highlighting key factors to look for over the next six months

     

  3. Despite the loss in foodservice demand, the food industry showed a relatively high level of resilience to the impact of COVID-19 disruptions, for the mere reason that food remains essential. Consequently, markets such as the fruit and vegetable market experienced a considerable spike in demand, as the health and wellness trend became more critical than ever. In this webinar, we will look into what's in store for the fruit and vegetable market category in 2021, amid other market drivers beyond COVID-19.
