Few businesses grapple with more changeability, operational complexity or commodity price risk than companies in the food and beverage industry. The StoneX Financial Inc. – FCM Division Commodity EDGE-X team understands these challenges and leverages extensive market access and deep expertise to help food processors, manufacturers and consumer packaged goods companies overcome them. Specifically, we work hand-in-hand with clients to:

We understand your whole business

Decades of working with clients in this space have taught us that nearly every aspect of your operation has at least some exposure to commodity price volatility. Most companies try to address the most obvious sources, like primary ingredient prices.  In our experience, the most successful companies take a holistic approach to commodity consumption across all the aspects of their business.
