“By integrating CommoPrices to Mintec, we accelerate the development of this platform developed by Reussir group for four years”, said Thibaut De Jaegher, CEO of Reussir Group & CommoPrices. “CommoPrices’s customers will be able to access the world’s largest commodities prices database, unique proprietary data and new functionalities such as commodity reports, weather analysis and price forecasts,” Thibaut added. “This partnership is the perfect combination of two like-minded commodity intelligence companies unified to give a powerful service for retailers and manufacturers around the world.”

The significant market volatility and rapid price inflation we are seeing today affect almost every sector and are particularly acute in the global food, beverage, and manufacturing industries. Price intelligence is essential to help these businesses understand how price movements impact their exposure to price risk and affect overall profitability. However, many companies lack access to accurate price data to help them negotiate with their suppliers and fix the timing of supply contracts. Combining Mintec’s 35 years of market experience in price discovery, proprietary data and price forecasts with the exceptional price data and market insight from CommoPrices, companies can now get the clearest, most actionable insight to inform their future buying decisions.
