SFGCU renewing program of forward contracts

JSC State Food and Grain Corporation of Ukraine is launching an autumn program of cereal purchase from the 2022 harvest, including as regards 3rd class wheat and barley grain, with the minimum batch to be delivered set at 100 tonnes.

That’s according to the company press service, Ukrinform reports citing the relevant Facebook post.

"The decision to enter into a contract for the supply of future harvests’ grain is made quickly and remotely. Prepayments under contracts are made in cash exclusively, which allows our customers - agricultural producers - to buy the goods they require to effectively run their own business with the chosen suppliers," the corporation noted.

SFGCU is obliged to assess the financial performance of the potential supplier, as well as its sown areas, before approving a decision to strike a deal.

The rate for the use of funds stands from 9.5% to 13% per annum in UAH, depending on delivery volumes.
