Argentine Farmers Set to Flood Market with Exports

first_img Argentine Farmers Set to Flood Market with Exports Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Nov 25, 2015 SHARE Facebook Twitter Farmers in Argentina are expected to swiftly boost exports that will increase global supplies of wheat, corn and soybeans. Following the weekend election of Mauricio Macri (Mar-ree-see-oh Mah-cree) as President of Argentina, the exports are expected from a promise of Macri to help farmers made during the campaign. Bloomberg reports the country’s farmers are ready to ship an estimated $8 billion in stored crops as soon as export taxes are lifted or reduced as Macri promised. He will take office December 10th and also vowed to lift currency controls.Export taxes and currency controls were protested by farmers leading to storage of about one-third of the nation’s recent record soybean harvest, about 22 million metric tons worth. Macri is considering a 90-day window of no export taxes on soybeans in a bid to spur sales from stockpiled crops. The country has shipped $17.6 billion of grains and oilseeds abroad so far this year, the lowest for the period since 2009, according to exporters’ consortium data.

Planning ahead

first_imgSubtitled ’Whole Grain Products: the Holy Grail for Health Conscious Consumers?’, this conference at Newcastle University aims to explore the use of wholegrains and their role in nutrition, health and food manufacturing. The aim is to contribute to current debates by policy-makers, such as EFSA and the FDA in the US, on ways to promote wholegrain use, legislate on associated health claims and establish workable definitions of whole grain and wholegrain foods.An interactive programme with leading experts from the industry will consist of an open discussion forum to help define whole grain, in collaboration with the AACC International Whole Grains Task Force, together with the ICC and the EU Integrated Project Healthgrain networks; and a half-day symposium, organised by the Grainity project, a consortium of researchers from the Nordic countries, focusing on rye. The open plenary session will review progress made since the last summit in 2005 and will be followed by four challenging presentations on the lead topics of the conference: nutrition, technology, consumer perception and EU vs US regulatory and labelling issues. These themes will be continued in four, half-day parallel sessions, with invited speakers and the latest research, followed by a summing-up in a closing plenary session. read more
