Independent Commodity Awards to Celebrate Industry’s Best

todayJanuary 17, 2023

Background

With commodity markets seeing increased volatility, innovation has sprung up across the industry to support the associated major shifts. To celebrate the best companies in the commodities sector, in line with our independent annual Commodity Trading Week event, we are pleased to announced its new awards, the Commodity Trading Awards. As we are the trusted third party in the industry, with no direct involvement in the companies’ processes, the independence of the awards is assured.

The awards have been created as a response to the industry’s requests for an independent and transparent process, avoiding any conflict of interest in celebrating outstanding contributions to the commodity markets. We have listened to stakeholders and, with our upcoming conference in April expecting over 1000 attendees, we have decided to launch the awards for 2023.

The judges selected for this year are C-level professionals from a diverse range of companies, including:

  • ED&F Man
  • Louis Dreyfus Company
  • Goodmills Group
  • Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association
  • Trade Finance Global
  • Mercuria

Ben Hillary, CEO and founder of Commodities People, said: “We are very pleased to have announced the launch of our new awards program, which has already been received with great enthusiasm. The entries are now in the hundreds, and we expect more to come. Having secured a great line-up of judges, we are looking to give back to the commodities community through a free-to-enter awards process. We are delighted to be able to respond to the industry’s demand for fair, transparent awards that truly recognise talent, dedication, and innovation.”

The categories for the Commodity Trading Awards are varied and include: Most Sustainable Trading Company of the year, Women in Commodities Award, Analytics Technology Leader of the year, and more. The winners will be announced at Commodity Trading Week 2023 in London on 25th of April, with winners chosen from a shortlist by the judges.
