With a total of 3.3 million pounds of transactions since October and trading in three key verticals trading at this time, GlobalFoodExchange.com is enthusiastic about the opportunity in the global food trade environment.
“GlobalFoodExchange.com is an impressive early stage leader in the
business-to-business food market,” says Jon Ekoniak, leading business-to-business equity analyst of U.S. Bancorp Piper Jaffery. “By developing a solution that addresses some of the biggest inefficiencies in the global food supply chain, the company has been able to gain meaningful traction. In turn, this traction has created a virtuous cycle, enabling the company to expand its product offering as well as attract top quality managerial talent and partners.”
Meat Launches April 17. Dairy and Specialty Commodities Coming Soon
In the upcoming weeks and months the company will launch commercial meat, dairy and specialty commodity verticals (all currently in beta development), dramatically increasing the service offering for multi-product buyers.
“Our customers are really seeing the value of an independent online marketplace,” said
Mark C. Moore, co-founder and president of GlobalFoodExchange.com. “With 1600 registered users and an increase of 20 percent per week in the number of transactions, we are expecting an even faster growth rate as we launch meat and dairy.”
This growth is outpacing Forrester‘s prediction of 75 percent of business-to-business food Internet transactions growth per year.
