Opportunities in Starches & Derivatives Markets for the Food Sector”

“Regional Cassava & Corn - Raw Material Balance for Starch Industry”

 

Rise in per capita consumption and growing demand for starch products from developing nations translates into a bright outlook for the sector. With the food industry ranking as the largest end-use sector, and the sweetener applications representing the largest sub-segment worldwide, innovations in biotechnology is propelling the demand for starch. Shift in consumerism for low fat and low calorie food is driving food companies to replace fats with gums and carbohydrates such as starches and hydrocolloids.

 

A massive potential market, South America is a key carbohydrates export region with Brazil as a significant starch producing market alongside Mexico, Paraguay and Argentina. As demand for starches and its value-added derivatives continue to flourish, Brazil and the wider Latin and South America is becoming an increasingly important focal point for the starch industry.

 

From the staple Brazilian pao de queijo (cheese bread) to syrup-based products, how is demand for starch influencing the food and beverage sector? With corn and cassava as the main feedstocks, what are the market dynamics shaping this diverse region of the Americas?

 

Latest edition to the starch series, CMT’s Starch World Americas will bring together regional and global experts to discuss South Americas promising starch, sweeteners and derivatives market.

 

Key Highlights

  • Starch market analysis: Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Colombia, Nicaragua, Caribbean
  • Currency inflation and impact on local feedstock pricing
  • Competitiveness of regional production for export: corn vs. cassava
  • Cross border trade between US & Mexico: From starches and fructose perspective
  • Commercialization of cassava with new starch properties (Amylose-free starch)
  • Developments in corn and cassava varietal releases in Brazil and Colombia
  • Innovative starch-modified product launches (Lysine, Maltodextrin, etc.)
  • Commercial applications of waxy starch, cassava flour, etc. in the food and beverage sector
  • Food trends in South America: Health issues, gluten-free, cost reduction, clean label
  • Growth of the biofuel economy in South America

And more!

Tereos to Become Sole Owner of Brazil’s Sugar and Ethanol Producer Guarani

Posted on : 15 May, 2017

 

Major agricultural group Tereos has finalised a deal to buy Brazilian sugar and ethanol producer Guarani SA. France based Tereos already owns 54.03% of Guarani’s share capital and with the new deal – worth USD-202-million (EUR 193.3m) Tereos will acquire the remaining 45.97% interest from Petrobras’ subsidiary – Petroleo Brasileiro SA. This will make Tereos the sole owner of Guarani.

 

Guarani owns and operates seven sugar and ethanol production facilities and two refineries in Brazil’s Sao Paulo. In 2016-17 crop, the company produced approximately 1.6 million tonnes of sugar from nearly 20 million tonnes of sugarcane. It is more than 630 million litres of ethanol and feed over 1 GWh of power into the grid.

 

Brazil is the world’s top producer and exporter of sugar, with a market share close to 50% of global exports. On the other hand, Tereos is the third largest sugar producer in Brazil, through its subsidiary Guarani. In a sugar market experiencing constant growth in emerging countries, this position is a key strategic asset for Tereos.

 

Once the clearance by the local authorities is received for the acquisition, Guarani will be renamed Tereos Açúcar e Energia Brasil.

 

More about starch and sugar markets in Brazil will be discussed at StarchWorld Americas on 13-14 June, 2017 in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil.

New Sugar Quotas for Mexico to US on the anvil?

Posted on : 17 Apr, 2017

 

The United States is the fourth-largest sugar market in the world. However, the US government often takes a protectionist stand towards its domestic producers with minimum price guarantees and a complicated network of marketing allotments and quota. Mexico is the top supplier to the US sugar industry and it is affected by the 2014 trade deal, which established quotas and minimum prices for imports of raw and refined sugar from Mexico. Some of USA’s producers view the trade pact as a "tool to reduce competition” by barring cheap sugar imports from Mexico.

 

The trade pact is now being reviewed and the US industry is proposing an agreement wherein more raw sugar supplies will be allowed from Mexico. However, there will be specification on the types of companies Mexican mills can sell in the US. Further the clauses are expected to prevent Mexican exporters from selling tariff-free sugar to meet import quotas under the deal to companies such as CSC Sugar that make liquid sugar. CSC Sugar said the proposals would exclude it and others from the export quota allotted to Mexico and that would effectively force it to source sugar elsewhere, limiting its supply options and potentially hurting competition in a market that already has only a few players.

 

Big cane refiners such as ASR Group, the maker of Domino Sugar and other brands, and Louis Dreyfus Co's Imperial Sugar Company are supposed to be some of the beneficiaries of the changes to the trade pact.

 

CSC has a capacity to produce about 400,000 tonnes of liquid sugar per year, and it caters to Unilever Plc and Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc., among others.

 

More on sugar market updates from Mexico and South America will be discussed at Starch World Americas on 13-14 June, 2017 in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil.

 

Companies outside Latin, Central & South America may contact Ms. Huiyan at 65-6346 9113 | huiyan@cmtsp.com.sg while those in Mexico can contact Ms. Tanya at 52-55 52941423 or 52-155 3655 0760 | tanya@cmtsp.com.sg and those in Brazil should call Ms. Michelle at 55 41 9957 3530 | latamrep@cmtsp.com.sg .

Red Stripe gets millions in IDB funding to grow cassava

Posted on : 18 Jan, 2017

 

United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization estimates that the global cassava production is set to accelerate over the current decade on account of demand for starch and other related products. This presents a great opportunity for millions of cassava growers to intensify production.

 

Project Grow – a Red Stripe's local raw materials sourcing initiative – has been awarded a US$814,417 grant by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

 

The funding is expected to be used to train 1000 young people in cassava crop production as part of Project Grow. It plans to build a network of 200 SMEs.

 

Through this project, Jamaica can aim to reduce its high import bill of high maltose corn syrup (HMCS). Red Stripe aims to substitute 40 per cent of its HMCS imports with cassava starch by 2019. However, to achieve this mammoth target, 65,000 metric tons of tubers (roots) annually will be required. Currently, Jamaica’s national production itself stands at a meagre 17,300 metric tons.  

 

Once there is enough expansion in cassava production, the high maltose corn syrup (HMCS) can be replaced with locally sourced cassava starch in the brewing process.

 

Red Stripe aims to ensure a year-round supply of cassava, which will be industrially processed to brew its iconic Red Stripe beer.

 

The IDB technical agreement will be until 2018 and with Desnoes and Geddes Foundation investing US$4.01 million.

 

More on South America’s cassava starch prospects at Starch World Americas on 13-14 June, 2017 in Foz do Iguaçu.
