In this issue of Agri Trade Highlights we focus on crop production and yields in Russia and Ukraine, as well as export quality and volumes in Canada. We also take a look at Tunisia’s record-breaking olive growing season and the opening of our new Malaysia Palm Oil Board approved laboratory in Malaysia.

Information is crucial and to satisfy the growing needs of the international trading community, SGS has developed mycotoxin and quality mapping services that are able deliver accurate data for quality origination and risk assessment. When subscribing to these services you receive regular reports that give you all the knowledge you need. Location specific quality test results per crop are performed covering common quality parameters and the data is constantly uploaded into our on-line reporting platform. Our inspectors follow the harvest wave taking multiple crop samples from farms and first gathering points. So eventually a full picture of quality and toxin data can be obtained for the entire production area.

Ensuring grain quality and the detection of toxins are crucial aspects towards a safe and effective supply chain. SGS can supply the data to achieve this goal now in many countries.

Additionally we can help to mitigate risk and to find opportunities with tailored crop studies. We offer more than 80 market studies presently, in more than 20 countries and we are constantly performing one-off projects for major Trade Houses and information services.

Finally, our Trade Flow Information that now covers more than 250 ports and Export Quality Statistics for a range of commodities, can assist you to actually understand the movements of commodities and their actual quality once exported. Commercially, those today that have access to data of this kind tend to be the most successful in their business. SGS can deliver the real information you need today to achieve that success.
