    UPDATE 1-Romanian union says strike averted at ADM Constanta grain silos

    The union representing workers at ADM's North Star Shipping grain silos in Romania's Black sea port of Constanta said on Monday an indefinite strike scheduled to start on July 15 had been averted after reaching an deal on wages. An indefinite strike at the Constanta port silos could have severely impacted grain supplies to Egypt, the world's largest wheat importer, and where ADM is an active exporter. Egypt closed its local wheat supply season on Monday, meaning imports would be the sole supply source.

    Barry Threatens Farming From Cotton to Sugar in Rain Washout

    (Bloomberg) -- Tropical Storm Barry’s dangerous downpours are threatening crops from cotton to sugar, grinding shrimping to a halt and forcing grain elevators to shut.With as much as 25 inches (64 centimeters) of rain projected for some areas, fields could get flooded at a time when plants are still in development stages. Heavy winds could damage sugar mills in the region and other agriculture facilities. Meanwhile, shrimp fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico are docking ships and tying down equipment, and agribusiness giant Cargill Inc. has shuttered grain-loading operations.“It’s an emotional drain to say the least,” said fifth-generation Louisiana farmer George LaCour, who raises cotton, sugarcane, corn, wheat, rice and crawfish on 10,000 acres, some of which are in the Morganza Spillway.LaCour, 57, has taken steps to secure his farm and Morganza home, where he’s lived since he was born. He’s redone the drainage tiles, cleared out debris and made sure his generators and chainsaws are working in anticipation of the storm, which is forecast to hit the state’s shores as a hurricane early Saturday. Other than that: “You just sit there and wait this out.”“It’s all you can do,” LaCour said. “There’s no cure. You try your best to hold it together while you go through this. Having been through hurricanes before, you prepare for the worst mentally and hope for the best.”Barry is just the latest blow to America’s agricultural economy. Incessant rains have washed out farms and flooded rural Midwestern towns. The deluge hampered the flow of farm products and hindered plantings. The weather woes come as crop prices have stayed depressed amid the U.S.-China trade war and hefty supply gluts.Climate change has brought increased risks to farming from floods, storms, drought and heat. While America’s crop belt suffered from a deluge, wheat growers in parts of Europe have had to deal with scorching temperatures and dry conditions.Here’s a look at some of Barry’s agriculture impact:GrainsCargill, America’s largest closely held company, said it shuttered its Louisiana export grain elevators on Thursday in anticipation of the storm. Rival Archer-Daniels-Midland Co. said it shut grain elevators and port operations in New Orleans Friday to prepare for the storm. Bunge Ltd. said it closed an export terminal and crush plant in Destrehan, Louisiana.The Gulf of Mexico is a key region for U.S. agriculture exports, with almost half of this year’s grain shipments loading along the Mississippi River, government inspections data show. The state is also home to corn, sorghum and soybean crops.In Louisiana, local prices signal the market is positioning for supply disruptions from the storm as shipping is grinding to a halt along the southern reaches of the Mississippi River. The soybean basis in the Gulf jumped 5.3% on Thursday, the steepest climb since June 7, to 50 cents a bushel, U.S. Department of Agriculture data show. The figure measures the amount above futures that buyers are willing to pay.CottonCotton plants in the southern portions of the Mississippi Delta region could be badly affected by the storm, according to Don Keeney, a senior agricultural meteorologist with Maxar in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Sugar cane is also likely to get serious damage from flooding, while corn may face “a little bit of wind damage,” he said.The impact on futures markets could be limited, though. There’s plenty of U.S. cotton in inventory that can help cushion the blow of supply loss.RiceArkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi -- each of which are in Barry’s path -- accounted for most of the rice grown in the U.S. last year. In top-producer Arkansas, heavy rain expected to arrive by Sunday could disrupt crop development, Jarrod Hardke, an agronomist at the University of Arkansas, said. Rice crops already were struggling after rains delayed spring plantings and then were hit with high temperatures.ShrimpingThe storm is likely to disrupt fresh catches of shrimp for a day or more, C. David Veal, executive director of the American Shrimp Processors Association in Biloxi, Mississippi, said on Friday. The association represents about 75% of fresh shrimp packers in the Gulf. As much as 120 million pounds (54,000 metric tons) of shrimp are caught each year off the U.S. Gulf.“It certainly causes dislocation, and preparation always takes a day out of business because employees have to prepare, too,” Veal said by telephone. “Then, there’s the constant worry if freezers go out.”SugarHeavy rains puts Louisiana’s sugar cane crops at risk, according to Herman Waguespack Jr., research director for the American Sugar Cane League in Thibodaux, Louisiana. The state produces 1.4 million tons of raw sugar, according to group’s website. Cane was planted on 440,000 acres as of 2017.“If Barry can come in and be gone, we will be much better off,” he said.\--With assistance from Kevin Varley, Mario Parker and Denitsa Tsekova.To contact the reporters on this story: Shruti Date Singh in Chicago at;Michael Hirtzer in Chicago at mhirtzer@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: James Attwood at, Millie MunshiFor more articles like this, please visit us at©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    UPDATE 2-Cargill quarterly profit dives 41% on trade tensions, U.S. floods

    Global commodities trader Cargill Inc reported a 41% drop in adjusted quarterly profit on Thursday, citing supply disruptions stemming from the U.S.-China trade war and also flooding in the central United States that hit marketing and transportation of grains and livestock. Cargill, the largest privately held U.S. company, said adjusted operating profit fell to $476 million in the fiscal fourth quarter ended May 31, from $809 million a year earlier, as three of its four business units posted lower year-on-year results. Trade tensions between Washington and Beijing have battered the U.S. agricultural sector as tit-for-tat tariffs have reduced commodities exports from the United States and redrawn global trade flows.

    Forget Synthetic Meat, Lab Grown Dairy Is Here

    (Bloomberg) -- The search for sustainable, healthy alternatives to meat currently has two paths: the meat-mimicking veggie burger and lab-grown proteins. But in the land of dairy, there’s only plant-based alternatives like cashew “butter” and almond milk. Whether you’re milking them or slaughtering them, industrial cattle husbandry is bad for the planet. Studies show it to be a key culprit in the climate crisis and a source of localized environmental damage. The refrigerator aisle has been full of plant-based dairy for some time, but now there are a few startups who, like the purveyors of cultured meat, want to take dairy one step further.Already under siege by falling milk sales, Big Dairy lobbyists have been lashing out at makers of plant-based rivals as they grow market-share. But their next enemy may be coming from the laboratory, in the form of synthetic whey, and investors are already lining up.While fewer people are drinking cow’s milk, they’re still eating yogurt and cheese, and a crucial protein that comes from making those products is whey. It’s relatively flavorless and incorporates well into a range of food formulations for everyone from infants to adults. There’s already a huge market for it, as demand for whey protein and whey-based products is on the rise thanks to consumer demand for protein in everything, from bars to shakes.The U.S. is the single largest exporter of whey products, with estimated sales of $10 billion last year. BCC Research said the category will grow by 6% annually through 2023. But for all its popularity, all that whey still comes from cows, a fact increasingly seen as a liability for climate- and health-conscious dairy and protein lovers.Ryan Pandya saw an opportunity in this consumer conundrum. He wants to be the first to market a non-animal whey protein through his San Francisco area-based company, Perfect Day. Like other food startup founders, Pandya and partner Perumal Gandhi are both vegan. Rather than forego the taste of real cheese and dairy for poor vegan substitutes, the pair decided to invent their own version of the real thing. The startup focused on the well-worn food path of microbial fermentation—harnessing custom yeast and bacteria to grow the proteins that make milk taste like milk. But first, the company and others like it face some big hurdles: consumer squeamishness and regulatory reviews that may end up focusing more on the genetically modified organisms [GMO] used to make lab-grown whey. Five years ago, Perfect Day joined the synthetic biology accelerator IndieBio as it searched for microbes that could be engineered to make functional milk proteins. Today, it has more than 60 employees, $60 million in funding and says that it’s produced one metric ton of lab-grown whey (for scale, the U.S. uses more than 200,000 metric tons of all types of whey annually). Late last year, agriculture giant Archer Daniels Midland agreed to invest in Perfect Day as the startup seeks to lower the cost of making whey. “When you’re creating something that already exists, there is already an established price point,” said Victoria de la Huerga, vice president of ADM Ventures. “The goal for companies that are leveraging new technology to make new food is you have to make it affordable.”Though it’s still early days, Perfect Day contends its proteins require 98% less water and 65% less energy than that required to produce whey from cows. The company said it hopes to one day license its ingredients so they can be used by food manufacturers in a range of products—but those involved concede that scaling the effort won’t be easy.Still, Perfect Day Chief Technical Officer Tim Geistlinger said the process is “fully adaptive—you can do it anywhere in the world and it doesn’t matter how hot it is.” Having come over from plant-based burger maker Beyond Meat, Geistlinger argued that “if you want to raise your flag on sustainability or tolerance to climate change, this one solves a lot of things.”While Perfect Day wants to be an ingredient supplier, food startup New Culture wants to make the end product: cheese from its own lab-grown casein, another protein derived from dairy. In the lab, New Culture has crafted a super stretchy, believable version of mozzarella—the most consumed cheese in the U.S. A third startup, Motif Ingredients—a spinoff of Gingko Bioworks—is using $90 million in funding to focus on lab-grown dairy proteins as flavor and texture ingredients.Matt Gibson, the New Zealand born founder of New Culture and a self-described committed vegan, said he didn’t like the non-dairy options on the market. “I just don’t think you can make cheese with any of the plant-based proteins,” he said.There’s even a nonprofit working on lab-grown whey. Real Vegan Cheese, based in Oakland, California, has been researching how to make multiple casein proteins with bacteria, and plans to do the same with yeast. The group said it wants to disseminate its recipe so others can develop their own sustainable, animal-free dairy products.Non-animal whey protein is new, and may require scrutiny by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. But Nigel Barrella, a food industry lawyer who is of counsel to the Good Food Institute, said lab-made whey will be viewed by regulators as simply another GMO food product. Last month, Perfect Day filed a General Recognized as Safe petition (GRAS) with the FDA, a voluntary request for government review.“In terms of the FDA’s attitude, it will be near the GMO product: functionally these are the same,” Barrella said, using corn as an example: “There is no scientifically known difference between corn and GMO corn.”But there’s still branding to worry about. Few people like to eat something with “lab-grown” on the label, and vegans will likely steer clear of something labeled “milk protein.” As a result, Perfect Day wants to rebrand microbes used in food—yeast, fungi, bacteria—as flora, a more consumer-friendly term.“We are trying to explore how we can get a term for this industry that’s outside of plant-based,” said Pandya. “Something someone with a plant-based diet can eat, but it’s not from plants. It’s an animal protein, but not from animals.”The company plans to start building its public profile by selling 1,000 pints of ice cream made with lab-grown whey, via its website. “Most of the functionality in ice cream or cream cheese is all about the whey proteins and how it operates with air and water,” said Gandhi.  Still, Nate Donnay, a Minnesota-based director of dairy insight for INTL FCStone, doesn’t see non-animal whey grabbing huge market share soon. “Sitting here in the heartland, no one is caring where the protein came from. They want it cheap and they want a lot of it,” he said. Donnay added, however, that “if you can get cost down and the functionality there, the big companies will take it.”Barrella, the food industry lawyer, said lab-made whey makers should play to their strong suit.“I think it will be sold as a benefit of the product—lower environmental footprint,” Barrella said. “It will be incumbent on the producers of these products to market the benefits of these products: milk proteins that don’t come from an animal.”To contact the author of this story: Larissa Zimberoff in New York at lzimberoff@gmail.comTo contact the editor responsible for this story: David Rovella at drovella@bloomberg.netFor more articles like this, please visit us at©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Major grain traders face one-two punch from U.S. floods, trade war

    Severe U.S. weather likely dented earnings for large grain companies including Archer Daniels Midland Co and Bunge Ltd for a second straight quarter, adding to headwinds from a still-unresolved U.S.-China trade war, analysts and economists said. ADM and Bunge, as well as peers Cargill Inc [CARG.UL] and Louis Dreyfus Co [LOUDR.UL], known as the ABCD quartet of global grain trading giants, faced processing-plant downtime, rail and barge shipping delays and other supply uncertainty this spring as historic floods ravaged the central United States. The weather woes are heaping more pain on the battered U.S. agricultural sector already hard-hit by a years-long crop supply glut and the U.S.-China trade war now entering its second year.

The sources, who requested anonymity to discuss sensitive market information, said Smithfield owns port facilities on the U.S. east coast and sometimes buys corn abroad because of the cost of shipping grains from the domestic corn belt. "We are just finding a destination for Brazil corn and supplying those who know there will be a shortage ... Just being faster and nothing else," said a third source close to ADM.
