A Complete Turnkey Operation
In order to help prospective grower/processor clients understand our marketing services, we have provided a list of steps that we follow as we guide them through the by-product trading process. We can adapt the process to meet each grower's/processor's unique situation and required deadlines.
In a nutshell (no pun intended), we provide a complete turnkey operation from start to finish, year after year:
- First meeting: overview of Agra Marketing Group services, including a discussion of grower's/processor's previous by-product revenues and a discussion of potential oppurtunities for growth.
- Evaluate by-products for quality and market potential
- Send by-products for testing, if necessary [Feed (fat, fiber, protein) and BTU analyses]
- Review testing results
- Make recommendations on improving quality
- Discuss potential markets and client deadlines
- Outline logistics per client's requirements and for client's convenience
- Generate purchase and sales contracts, coordinate pricing, freight weights, and transportation
- Provide an ongoing and thorough transaction report
- Review the process for continued improvement
