On world markets, cereal prices showed growth

On world markets, cereal prices showed growth
Most of the week grain prices were on the rise. Investors covered short positions after falling for wheat and corn, that kept the purchase.

This was reported in the review of FOREX CLUB.

Dynamics of prices reflect the speculative mood in anticipation of the forecasts for the new crop and stocks of grain from the Ministry of agriculture of the United States.
On the Chicago Mercantile exchange CME December contract for wheat rose 0.8 percent to $437,75 100 Bush, corn fell 0.2% to $356,75 100 Bush, soy rose 1.8% to $962 per 100 Bush.

"The market may be volatile, but the proximity of prices to multi-month lows to keep from falling further. Thus, any evidence of reduced supply or increased consumption target increase", — predicts senior analyst at FOREX CLUB Andrey Shevchishin.
December futures can be:
on wheat — $430-445 100 Bush;
corn — $335-370 for 100 Bush;
soybeans — $920-985 100 Bush.
Recall that global cereal production in 2017/18 MG will be 2,049 billion tons, which is 11 million tonnes more than the July forecast.

Office of the Bank, 3rd floor, vul. Antonovich, 46, Kiev.

On behalf of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), I have the honour to invite you to a seminar devoted to the discussion of the advantages and difficulties associated with the transition to the best standards of animal welfare in the poultry industry.

Animal welfare is becoming a global challenge. In recent years a growing public interest in this matter, which in turn leads to changes in consumer preferences, particularly in developed countries. As a reflection of these changes is developing legislation regarding animal welfare in the EU, setting an example to other countries and laying the Foundation for future changes. Animal welfare is becoming too serious issue for many producers to ignore it, because they need to respond to pressure from consumers both at home and in international markets, as in the case of exporters. This is especially true for poultry, where the pressure to improve existing standards of production are felt very strongly.

The EBRD is the first international financial organization that has introduced a mandatory criteria of animal welfare in relation to the projects that we funded. Thus, we closely monitored the above mentioned changes and evaluate their possible impact on the business. The Ukrainian poultry industry has serious untapped potential, especially in foreign markets; however, there are a number of issues that need to be addressed, to be able to fully realize this potential, among them questions of standards of animal welfare. If Ukrainian producers expect to be competitive abroad, you need to seriously examine the question of the transition to animal husbandry systems associated with improved standards of animal welfare.

The event, organized jointly with the Union of poultry breeders of Ukraine and Humane Society International, aims to raise awareness on issues of animal welfare in the industry and to provide a platform to discuss the various benefits and difficulties associated with the transition to the best standards. We would be very grateful if you are able to take part in the seminar. Please confirm your participation by contacting us on the contact details given below. Also for your information the attached provisional programme for the event.

Global feed production grows and konsolidiruyutsya

Global feed production grows and konsolidiruyutsya
Last year, the world feed production exceeded 1 billion tons, the growth was achieved with a smaller number of operating mills, which indicates the trend of consolidation in the industry, Aidan Connolly (Aidan Connolly) Vice President of Alltech, commented on the results of a recently published report 2017 Alltech Global Feed Survey.

The largest increase last year was in Vietnam, Mexico and Spain, but in the future most of the growth will occur in Africa. According to Connolly, in Africa today, the feed production in calculating the per person is the lowest on the planet and taking into consideration the projected GDP growth in the countries of the continent can expect a rapid growth of the industry in the coming years.

However, Africa is still characterized by inefficiency of production and high cost of raw materials for feed production. It is possible that in the future it will continue to hinder development.

However, according to Connolly, in Europe, there was a lot of problems, however, the production growth last year was at the level of 3.4% and this is quite a high figure, particularly taking into account the changes in agricultural policies in the region, as well as problems in particular the producers of milk.

The European organic market shows an amazing growth rate

The growth of the European organic market remain at over 10% per year. This was announced by experts of the Research Institute of organic agriculture (FIBL), what works in Switzerland, Germany and Austria, during the exhibition BIOFACH in Nuremberg (Germany).

Researchers presented final data on the European organic sector in 2015, according to which the European market of organic production in 2015 increased by 13% and reached almost €30 billion (particularly in the European Union up to €27.1 billion).

FIBL experts noted that the rate of growth of the organic market in Europe exceeded 10% for the first time since the global financial crisis of 2007-2008. In particular, in Germany, the market grew by 11%, but in France and Italy — 15%.

The largest organic market in Europe is Germany (€8.6 billion), followed by France (€5.5 billion), followed by the UK (€2.6 billion) and Italy (€2.3 billion). According to preliminary data, in 2016 the German organic market grew to €9.5 billion, and became the second largest in the world after the us (€35.8 billion in 2015).

Ordinary Europeans spent on organic products for the year of €36,4, and a resident of the EU €53,7. The highest consumption of organic products per capita in Switzerland (€262 — the most in the world), Denmark (€191) and Sweden (€177). The share of organic products in the total volume of food products was the highest in Denmark (8.4 per cent), Switzerland (7.7%) and Luxembourg (7.5 per cent).

Growth of organic farmland continued to lag behind the growth of demand for organic products. However, it grew faster than in previous years — 8.2% or nearly 1 million hectares. At the end of 2015, the global area of organic farmland has reached 12.7 million hectares, of which 11.2 million hectares in the EU. The largest area of organic farmland had Spain (1970 ha), Italy (1490 ha) and France (1370 ha). In each of these countries the annual increase of organic land exceeded 100 thousand hectares. In 9 countries organic certification had more than 10% of the area of farmland, mostly in Liechtenstein (30,2%), Austria (21.3 per cent) and Sweden (16.9 percent).

In Europe, there were nearly 350 thousand producers of "organic" (in the EU — 270 thousand), and 60 thousand of organic processors and importers of organic 3700. A number of manufacturers of "organic" has grown on 3% (in the EU — 5%), organic processors increased by 12%, and importers — 19%.

According to experts FIBL, organic production is lagging behind demand. Therefore, European countries should follow a clear strategy of organic production, contribute to a reduction in market chains to improve the statistics and collection of information in the organic sector.
