ICE became the center of global trading in agricultural commodities with its acquisition of the New York Board of Trade in 2007. Today we offer futures and options on the leading softs markets including coffee, cocoa, cotton, sugar and frozen concentrated orange juice, as well as a wide range of grains futures and options, including the leading canola futures contract, an important Canadian oilseed.
Our benchmark contracts offer the most globally relevant price markers for the agricultural markets and provide customers across a variety of industries with effective tools to manage price and counterparty risk, facilitate price discovery, and capture new trading opportunities in a highly liquid, transparent market.
