Agiblocks Specialized Commodities: Sugar, Coffee, Cocoa and Grains

Agiboo’s flagship software was launched over a decade ago and focused on the early adopter initiatives for cocoa, coffee and sugar. It offered specialized industry CTRM for these first commodities, and has since expanded to support anything from grain to cotton, nuts and (edible) oils. In other words, almost the whole range of agricultural commodities can be traded by implementing Agiblocks as your go-to solution. Moreover, Agiblocks comes with unique features for four specific commodities: Sugar, Coffee, Cocoa and Grains. You’ve probably heard us say that before. Now we’d like to tell you a little more about those specialized commodities, and what it means in the context of working with Agiblocks.

Agiblocks and Agricultural trade

Commodities in general can be divided into three different groups: Agricultural, Metals and Energy. When thinking of ‘commodity trade’, the mind easily goes to petroleum, gold, precious metals and, basically, any of the commodities that are either Metals or Energy. But agricultural or soft commodities are something to be desired as well. Indeed, the industry has experienced boosts in interest due to investors looking to diversify their portfolio of stocks and bonds. For traders, even the smallest percentage of any soft commodity will lead to a reduction of both volatility and risks. The top five of soft commodities in terms of annual consumption is made up of cocoa, coffee, grain, sugar and cotton. Agiblocks covers all five, of course – but has four of them listed as Specialized Commodities to boot. 

They may have lots in common – such as being four of the five most-traded commodities out there – but obviously have their unique characteristics as well. That’s why we would like to address these commodities in depth, as well as explain to you how Agiblocks caters to them with unrivaled dedication. In our upcoming series you can find out more about all four of them individually – starting with Sugar

Agiblocks CTRM software is a powerful and agile commodity trade and risk management tool. It supports trading management as well as financial management from the same source of data and within the same easily accessible application. As such, it is the preferred CTRM solution for a grower number of customers. One of its distinguishing USP’s is the fact that Agiblocks provides a large number of detailed features and functions, in many cases specialized for a certain commodity or commodity group. It is this specialization that makes Agiblocks the foremost solution for agricultural trade not only in general, but for four of the biggest soft commodities specifically as well.
