Scanwel Commodities is a settled trader on the Black Sea and Mediterranean markets for grains, oilseeds and their by-products. Grains traditionally account for the major part of the trading volumes, although year-on-year variability is high due to the constantly changing market conditions. Trading in oilseeds and oils is a constant business for the company.
Regarding individual products, our most common trades are in feed/milling wheat, maize, barley, sunflower seeds, rape seed, soy beans, safflower, camelina seeds, sunflower oil, sunflower expeller cake etc.
We have a tendency to increase the number of traded commodities. It is a result of the conscious efforts of Scanwel Commodities to grow not only by digging deeper into its existing markets, but also by broadening its horizons.
