To market on a global scale, we are engaged in a complex scenario with a multi-level structure of risks.
Coffee is traded in U.S. dollar in the international market, as all the major commodities: therefore, buying and selling coffee everyday requires a constant exchange of the American dollar for Euro, both on a spot and a forward rates.
The risk that the currency rate may diverge unfavorably directly impacts on the economic risk of lower incomes or higher expenditures than expected.
If not managed appropriately, the foreign exchange risk can severely compromise the financial process of profit maximization, exposing the company to the risk of potential losses related to changes and developments in the macro-economic scenario.
The close analysis of the FOREX is a strategic tool in creating customized offers to our customers and managing the exchange rate risk.
