This report presents the results of an International Trade Centre (ITC) study looking at the impact of fluctuating global quinoa prices on rural Peruvian households dependent on the product for their basic food security.
Peru is one of the world’s leading producers of quinoa. Over the last 10 years, this protein grain has become a much sought-after product, especially in North America and Europe. As a result of increased demand, the price of quinoa nearly tripled between 2004 and 2013.
Decision Making Factors for Country-of-origin Agriculture Branding in International Markets: The Case of Orchids in Taiwan
The handbook “From Contacts to Contracts” provides the necessary information that one needs in order to prepare for a trade show and how to successfully participate during the show or to make a direct contact and the important steps to take after the first contact has been established in order to derive the maximum benefits from attending the trade show.
The major structural changes influencing world agricultural markets include increasing consolidation and market domination by large processing, trading, and retailing firms, disappearance of traditional auction or spot markets for exchange of farm products and their replacement by various forms of contracts and vertical control, and a growing emphasis on product differentiation and increasingly broad dimensions of product and selling-firm quality.
