Commodity in Focus: Food inflation outlook — Impact of El Niño

26 September 2023 15:00 to 26 September 2023 16:00

The looming threat of El Niño is raising alarms regarding food inflation. El Niño is expected to disrupt global weather patterns and have a significant impact on agricultural production and supply chains, which in turn can drive up food prices. 

In this hour-long webinar, our Head of Commodity Intelligence, Hemant Bansal, along with our commodities experts Kumar Amit and Nidhi Jain, will discuss the impact of El Niño weather conditions on food inflation, including:

  • What is El Niño and what are its broader economic implications (logistics, energy, food inflation)?
  • Analysis of previous El Niño years, highlighting the extent of similarities or differences with the current scenario
  • Agro commodity demand, supply, and price outlook (grains – wheat and corn, vegetable oils – palm oil and soybean oil, and soft commodities – sugar and cocoa) 
  • Role of additional factors such as the end of the Black Sea grain deal and drought in the US/Europe

Webinar date – Tuesday, 26th September 2023

Time: 3pm BST/ 4pm CEST/ 9am CDT/ 10am EDT
