Rise above market disruption

World weather and geo-political events along with rising consumer prices have eclipsed the COVID pandemic as the primary concern in agricultural and food markets heading into 2024.

While prices for some major commodities have ebbed, others like sugar and cocoa have risen, reaching record highs in certain cases. Volatility is guaranteed, even if production and price levels are not.

Don’t let uncertainty hold you back. Join us at the 47th Annual Sosland Publishing Purchasing Seminar, June 2-4, 2024, in Kansas City, MO, to find the insights and connections you need to stay ahead of turbulent commodity markets.
