Subscribe and don't miss an issue.

Our February 2019 issue focuses on China and how its 90-day trade truce with the USA will affect the country’s soyabean imports.

A market report on Germany looks at the country’s rapeseed sector including issues affecting production and consumption.

We write on new EU legislation setting benchmark levels for acrylamide in food and how businesses can reduce levels of this chemical in their products, and the role of frying in acrylamide formation.

We also examine the development of the biodiesel industry and how feedstocks have changed from food crops to waste streams from oils and fats processing.

The February issue reports on the latest news and developments around the world relating to projects and technology.

On the topic of transport and logistics, we feature a Rabobank study focusing on how Brazil’s grain traders must adapt to logistic and storage challenges or face exiting the market.

The February issue also includes OFI’s regular mix of news, event listings and statistics.
