An awareness and education seminar on agri-business and commodity price risk management will be held at 5.30 p.m. on November 15 at Hotel Coastal Residency, Tiruchengode Road, Ayyampalayam, Namakkal in Tamil Nadu.

The event is part of an ongoing initiative by The Hindu Business Line jointly with the Forward Markets Commission (FMC), the commodity futures market regulator under the Union Ministry of Consumer Affairs, and the National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX).

Commodity producers, processors, traders, importers, exporters and related others face price risks in the volatile marketplace.

If not managed scientifically, volatility and adverse price movements can hurt current business prospects and future growth. Risk management is the way forward.

The seminar intends to create an awareness among market participants about the need to follow price risk management practice.

Hedging is a scientific way of managing commodity price risks.

Namakkal has a vibrant poultry industry in addition to other agri-businesses. D. Jagannathan, District Collector, will inaugurate the event as the chief guest. Special invitees include R. Nallathambi, President, Tamil Nadu Poultry Farmers’ Association, P. Selvaraj, President, NECC, Namakkal zone, and N. Elango, President, MSME, Namakkal district.
