I make it a priority to
understand the
nature of your
business interests.


We all go through a process to make a pricing-decision. My job is to become your in-house research analyst, so that you have the best fundamental information to do your job better.

Everybody can access generic information and government or weather reports at the same time. What differentiates the research and distinguishes me are the contacts, style, delivery, approach and detail that are not readily available. There is so much information out there, but by focusing on what really matters and by leveraging observations, trends & opinion, decisions can then be made with confidence and less on emotion.

Lentil price change measured in pennies per pound and yellow peas in dimes per bushel.

For lentils, the nucleus of perception revolves around India. Yellow peas too because that influences whether China shifts from lay-in-weeds. What India does or doesn’t do drives discretionary purchase behavior elsewhere. Green peas are more about quality, with kabuli chickpeas still working off a massive 2018 North America crop that was big enough to service two years of demand. Speed of North America kabuli repair can be helped by segment of poorer quality from 2019 harvest, but change is minor because repair was a two-year journey anyway.
