    Cocoa prices soar as ICoast, Ghana threaten supply cut

    Cocoa prices rose sharply on Wednesday after key producers Ivory Coast and Ghana threatened to stop selling their production to buyers unwilling to meet a minimum price. The two African nations, which together account for 60 percent of the world's cocoa production, summoned buyers to Accra for a two-day meeting demanding a price of $2,600 per tonne. At the end of the meeting, Joseph Boahen Aidoo, chief executive of the Ghana Cocoa Board, told a news conference that their demands had been accepted in principle by the participants, but that there would be a follow-up meeting to work out how to implement the agreement.

    Big brands break pledge to not destroy forests: report

    A rainforest area the size of Spain will have been destroyed by firms growing consumer staples like palm oil in the decade to 2020 -- industry's self-imposed deadline to end deforestation, Greenpeace said Tuesday. Some of the world's largest consumer brands -- including Nestle and Unilever -- had pledged in 2010 to reach net zero deforestation within a decade through "responsible sourcing" of cattle, palm oil, soya and other commodities. "These companies are destroying our children's future by driving us towards climate and ecological collapse," said Anna Jones, global project lead for forests at Greenpeace UK.

    Tropical forest the size of England destroyed in 2018: report

    Last year humanity destroyed an expanse of tropical forest nearly the size of England, the fourth largest decline since global satellite data become available in 2001, researchers reported Thursday. Almost a third of that area, some 36,000 km2, was pristine primary rainforest, according to the annual assessment from scientists at Global Forest Watch, based at the University of Maryland. "For the first time, we can distinguish tree cover loss within undisturbed natural rainforests, which contain trees that can be hundreds, even thousands, of years old," team manager Mikaela Weisse told AFP.

    Can 'Big Brother' technology clean up palm oil's image?

    Some of the world's major palm oil users, including Nestle, Unilever, and Mondelez, are trying out new satellite technology to track deforestation, as pressure grows on them to source the ingredient responsibly. Palm oil buyers have toyed with satellite imagery for years, but have now ramped up their use as they rush to meet a pledge of zero net deforestation by 2020, set by global umbrella body the Consumer Goods Forum.

    Trading house Mitsubishi maintains full-year profit forecast

    Japan's biggest trading house Mitsubishi Corp on Tuesday posted a 6 percent rise in its April-December net profit thanks to higher income from energy operations, and stuck to its record profit forecast for the year despite one-off losses. Mitsubishi's net profit grew to a record 442 billion yen (3 billion pounds) for the nine months to Dec. 31 from 416 billion yen a year ago. The company booked an impairment loss of 28 billion yen on its stake in Singapore's Olam International and 31 billion yen on its investment in iron ore mines in Chile in the October-December quarter, but it kept its forecast of a record 640 billion yen profit for the year ending March.

    Commodities: Cocoa tops 2018 gainers, as growth worries roil metals, crude

    Cocoa prices ended 2018 with strong gains, leading generally firmer agricultural markets, but the year marked falls for most major commodities as increasing global economic uncertainty hit metals and oil. Worries about slackening growth in China, the world's second-largest economy, and trade talks between Washington and Beijing will be the main focus in the new year, analysts said, while oil markets fear a growing oversupply. "We had a dramatic decline in the crude oil market as global supplies are rising, not just the United States but also Saudi Arabia and Russia," said Phin Ziebell, senior economist at National Australia Bank, who covers agriculture, oil and gas markets.

    The EU's palm oil policy is triggering condemnation from the other side of the globe

    A proposed ban on the use of palm oil in transport fuel used in the EU is driving fears in major Southeast Asian producing countries where the product is a key economic crop. The European move comes after years of activist campaigns about the vegetable oil associated with rampant deforestation and labor abuses, highlighting how consumer concerns about sustainability are increasingly influencing businesses. The palm oil industry, with its national epicenter on that island, is thought to be one of the biggest drivers of that loss, the coalition said.
