Managing Commodity Price Volatility: INTL FCStone's 2012 Grocery Conference

CHICAGO, Sept. 12, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

WHAT: INTL FCStone Inc. (Nasdaq:INTL) is hosting the 2012 Grocery Conference, sponsored by CME Group, to help grocery retailers, wholesalers and others in the food industry foresee global supply and demand issues, prepare for and protect against the risks of price fluctuations, and improve their margins.

WHEN: October 24-26, 2012.

WHERE: CME Group Headquarters, 20 South Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois.

WHY: Grocery wholesalers, retailers and distributors face unprecedented margin pressures as a result of rising and volatile commodity prices for grains, meats and processed foods, packaging and construction materials, energy costs, fuel surcharges and more.  This conference will provide long-term forecasts for commodity prices, interest rates and the U.S. economy and introduce a wide array of exciting new tools for managing risk and enhancing margins.

Speakers will address global economics, energy procurement trends and food price inflation, and will provide their outlooks for meat and dairy products, grains and energy, produce and vegetable oils, and metals and food-packaging materials.
