Anderson Exports Word Tour 2018

April 16

Anderson Exports is a Bulk Ingredients Sourcing Agency in Northern California. We specialize in sourcing the best ingredients from California, Brazil and the rest of the world. 

World Tour 2018

The Anderson Exports team is leaving on Friday, April 20th to Beijing on a 12 city trip across several Asian & European countries. We will be visiting clients, attending several industry events, and looking to expand both our product range and our reach into what we see as the world’s most important markets in the coming decades. 

We are providing our schedule below. Please let us know if you would like to meet & discuss any potential opportunities for collaboration.


California Raisins

Other than a handful of expensive spot loads, California packers are sold out of raisins. Without saleable material, some packers are unable to fill current contracts and are advising customers to wait until new crop shipments. In order to keep raisins on their customer’s shelves, some California packers are even pulling product from Chile. Across the central valley, this year is widely considered to be unlike any other in memory. 

To help illustrate the key issues facing the industry this year and in future years, we put together this series of graphics:


Brazil Sugar

Sugar prices continued to trend lower due to the outlook of global surplus. Key producing regions are expanding production. Brazil is on-track to achieve a record sugar crop of 40.2 million metric tons (mmt) due to favorable weather, stable planted acreage and lower use of cane for ethanol. In India, the second largest global producer of sugar, subsidized prices and continues to incentivize production growth. Strong yields, higher cane recovery rates, and increased planted acreage lifted estimates for India’s sugar output to 31mmt, considerably above the initial government expectations of a crop of only 26mmt. Thailand, which benefits immensely from it’s high proximity to growing net-importers nearby, has also doubled production over the past decade. 

We expect prices to remain weak in this surplus environment and Brazil to be particularly well-positioned to pick up share in export markets.
We offer Brazil origin ICUMSA 45 Sugar by the vessel on a spot (MOQ: 100,000mt) or forward contract basis including long-term contracts of 300,000mt / month x 12 months. Payment by SBLC, BG, or DLC from global top 50 bank. Product is SGS-inspected end-to-end at buyer’s request. 

Brazil Soybeans

Soybean prices have remained firm due to strong global demand, drought in Argentina, and increasing freight prices. Production expectations from Brazil continued to strengthen in recent weeks as Conab increased their 2017/2018 Brazilian soybean estimate by 1.9mmt to 114.9mmt. Planted soybean acreage is estimated at 86.6mm acres, reflecting an increase of 3.5% over the prior year. Soybean yields are expected to drop a modest 2.6% compared to last year. In addition to benefiting from favorable environmental conditions, Brazil soybean exporters will also be relatively advantaged by tariffs on U.S. corn imports to China. 
We supply GMO and Non-GMO certified soybean from Brazil. MOQ: 100,000+ tons. Payment by SBLC, BG, or DLC from global top 50 bank.

Brazil Corn

The safrinha corn crop in Brazil is developing well due to favorable soil moisture, particularly in central Brazil. Conab is now estimating the 2017/2018 Brazilian corn crop at 88.6mmt, up 1.4mmt from the March estimate. However, year-over-year declines in the full-season corn acreage and lower expected yields offset favorable growing conditions. As a result, the estimated full-season corn crop is 25.6mmt, representing a decline of 16% compared to the prior year.  

We supply GMO and Non-GMO certified corn from Brazil. MOQ: 100,000+ tons. Payment by SBLC, BG, or DLC from global top 50 bank.
