Agro CommoditiesFrom humble, small volume beginnings in commodities trading, over the years Frost International has created a name for itself in the niche of trading of agricultural commodities. With a presence in Singapore, Canada, Malaysia, The UK, Indonesia, France, Russia, Latin America and India, Frost International trades primarily in Wheat, Soya Bean meal, Rapeseed, Palm oil, Rice, Pulses, Maize, Cereals, Dry fruits and Spices. With trades in excess of INR 3085 crore in 2011-12, Frost International is well known as an established player delivering rock solid performance in an otherwise volatile commodities market, through timely deliveries and consistently exceeding customer expectations.
The commodities trade is fundamentally volatile, with variations of up to 10% fairly commonplace on account of the numerous factors that influence the demand and supply scenario of different commodities in various parts of the world. Additionally, geo-political factors, market perceptions, speculation by fund managers and traders and more recently, the critical issue of global climate change has also added to the volatility of the global commodity markets. Widely and easily available information about commodities, trades, stock positions, geo-political events and weather / commodity growth patterns have seen an increase of the type of speculative players in the market, adding to the risk element of the commodity trade.
Frost International's team of professionals provide customised service and real time updates about global commodities markets to our customers. With a strong focus on bulk trading of soya and its allied products such as soya bean meal, palm oil, rapeseed oil, rice and pulses, Frost implemented sound risk management strategies and expertise to leverage opportunities in the commodities markets and emerge as an industry front-runner.
Frost International also imports pulses from Singapore and Canada, supplying to wholesale merchants in the East Indian states of West Bengal, Orissa and Bihar. Additionally, Frost has now forayed into the trade of American Corn and Cotton. Frost sources soya bean seeds from Central India, and exports them from ports in the West Indian states of Gujarat and Maharashtra.
With domestic production of food grains touching record highs, exports of agricultural products are estimated to surpass US $22 billion by 2014. Frost International is keenly awaiting these resultant market opportunities to better serve its customers and clients worldwide.
