August 27, 2020 (CHICAGO, IL) - Barchart, a leading provider of market data and technology services to the financial, media, and commodity industries, has announced a new partnership with Mercaris, a leader in organic and non-GMO market intelligence, analysis, and trading.
Effective immediately, Mercaris’ organic and non-GMO grain and oilseed data for North America will be available for subscription through Barchart, allowing clients to consume Mercaris’ identity-preserved grain and oilseed prices alongside Barchart’s futures, spot, and forward prices for conventional grain.
“Through this new partnership with Mercaris, our clients will now be able to easily access the largest and most comprehensive organic and non-GMO data set available for North America,” says Barchart CEO Mark Haraburda. “We are committed to being the leader in global agricultural data, and by onboarding Mercaris, our clients can now easily analyze benchmarks for non-GMO and organic grains and oilseeds against our benchmark conventional price and basis indexes.”
“Our goal is to drive market transparency in an otherwise opaque market” says Mercaris CEO and co-founder Kellee James. “The U.S. organic food market has doubled sales in the last 9 years, and that trend isn’t slowing down. Many stakeholders in the organic supply chain are also active in conventional food and agriculture, and we are pleased that now, through Barchart, customers can seamlessly enable comparisons between the two.”
