WE PROTECT OUR CUSTOMERS – AND YOURS
There are no “sure things” in the agricultural and commodity markets. Weather, international supply and demand, and logistics are some of the factors that can affect your bottom line. Didion can offer tailored programs to mitigate some of this risk. We can use futures, options, basis to lock in values long term. This allows us to provide a steady supply that is consistent in both price and quality.
We source from 800 producers to protect against drought, grain shortage, or product that doesn’t quite meet our high standards. If one region can’t meet our expectations, we’ll increase sourcing from another region.
To make sure we’re prepared for what’s coming at harvest, Didion buyers do regular crop tours. This helps us prevent surprises and make the best purchasing decisions for you.
When producers drop corn, a sample is taken from every truck. We test for moisture and foreign material, among other factors, and immediately segregate less-than-exceptional product.
We also hedge corn purchasing based on market predictions. Thanks to a 3.5M bushel elevator, we’re able to purchase and store corn, helping to lock in favorable pricing and protect us against market fluctuations.
