For anyone familiar with the conventional agricultural supply chain, in addition to long term contracting many rely on large exchanges such as CME and ICE to procure grain and hedge risk. Unfortunately Organic and non-GMO products are not available via these venues. So farmers and food processors are often left to fend for themselves in finding local supply, or perhaps turn to brokers. This may solve an immediate need, but leaves all parties wondering whether the prices they are getting are typical of the larger market. The first step in addressing some of these unmet needs is a centralized, neutral third party that offers true price discovery via a marketplace.
Our Auctions are the industry’s first online marketplace for marketing and trading certified Organic, non-GMO and identity preserved commodities. It works just like any other auction, with a fixed period for bidding (or offering) on bushels of certified Organic corn, soybeans, wheat, and other crops. Buyers and sellers of Organic or Non-GMO commodities are connected through our real-time auction platform. Users can view upcoming auctions, bid in live auctions and view data from previous auctions that have closed. It’s an easy way to market your organic grain, or manage your organic grain inventory.
Our online auctions for Organic and non-GMO agricultural commodities makes it easy to view ongoing auctions and place bids or offers in real time.
