rabobank review april 2024

CHESTERFIELD, MO (April 24, 2024) – Rabobank’s RaboResearch Food & Agribusiness (F&A) team in North America announced today the publication of the North American Agribusiness Review, a report which includes an analysis and summary of market conditions and trends across North American agriculture issued every other month.

“U.S. consumers have proven far more resilient than expected and we continue to analyze drivers behind evolving consumption patterns. Grocery volume sales have started to recover as food inflation has slowed. Our upstream market expectations are mixed, with continued weakness in some and expected recovery in others. In the Review, the RaboResearch team discerns key insights into agricultural markets and conducts an analysis of the factors that drive sectors like soybeans, dairy, poultry and other key commodities’ trends,” said Roland Fumasi, Head of RaboResearch North America.

“To support our North American clients across the entire food value chain, our team of research analysts collects information and spots opportunities that influence agribusiness’ business strategies to support a resilient food system.”

The North American Agribusiness Review is a bi-monthly update featuring market outlooks and key insights in a variety of agriculture sectors, including everything from farm inputs to retail food sales.

The RaboResearch North American team consists of 20 analysts who monitor and evaluate the market events that affect food and agriculture to help clients navigate the ever-changing sector landscape. In this month’s publication, the team provides an overview of what developments to watch in the upcoming months in North America, including inflation, supply chain headwinds and pricing.

Along with the North American Agribusiness Review, Rabo AgriFinance clients have exclusive access to a range of other RaboResearch reports throughout the year, plus webinars and client events featuring RaboResearch analysis.
