In the fast-paced and dynamic feed industry, obtaining accurate and up-to-date price information is pivotal for making informed decisions timely. That's where Price Benchmarks step in, improving the negotiation process by providing a reliable reference point for feed and food industry professionals.
Price Benchmarks have been created to complement our existing product, Price Trends. With the latter, it is possible to have a global, quick view of global price variation in relative terms (%) to understand the big picture. Today, we’re launching Price Benchmarks for Europe (EXW/FCA prices shown in EUR), covering more than 16 amino acids and vitamins so you also see real current prices. In the future, we plan to bring more regions and products.
In this blog post, we share the details of Price Benchmarks, highlighting how they outperform other alternatives and why Kemiex stands as a unique and reliable source.
