New price data

Last month saw the addition of more than 500 Brazilian price lines added to the IEG Vu Price Graphing Tool.

The new lines include values for the following commodities, broken down by the main producing regions: beef, cattle, poultry, eggs, pigs, pork, live birds, liquid milk, soybeans, sorghum, wheat, maize (corn), soymeal, soy oil and wheat meal.

Further information is available in this article, which details IEG Vu’s plans for expanded coverage of the Brazilian agri-food market in 2019 and beyond.


In case you missed them, there were two new podcasts added to the website last month also.

The first one looks at Sugar and Red Meat Taxes and examines the policy outlook for such measures as well as the potential market impacts.

IEG Vu’s Neil Murray and Max Green are joined by Peter Rixon and Joan Murphy from sister website IEG Policy to discuss one of the hottest topics in public health policy, and how food manufacturers are responding.

Secondly, IEG Vu’s Sandra Boga is joined by Arvind Chudasama of International Sugar Journal and Agribusiness Intelligence’s head of special reports, Alan Bullion, live from the ISO event in London.

The podcast, available here, asks whether the EU sugar sector is in the doldrums in the post-production quota era, and whether the ban on neonicotinoids is likely to have an impact on yields across the bloc.

You will find all of our previous podcasts in the Podcasts and Webinars section of the website, at the following location in the left hand menu bar: Resources> Podcasts & Webinars.
