    Edible oil traders use free-trade pact to get around India's import tax hike

    MUMBAI/KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Edible oil traders are sourcing exports of palm oil and other cooking oils to India from neighbouring countries, designating the supplies as duty-free under a regional free-trade pact and circumventing India's import tax hike on the oils. India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are among the signatories of the South Asian Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA) that created a free-trade zone in the South Asian region. The rising flow of duty-free edible oils is disrupting trade in India, the world's biggest importer of the oils, and is undermining efforts to raise local oilseed prices, the reason for imposing the taxes.

    It’s impossible to lead a totally ethical life—but it’s fun to try

    You want to do the right thing.

    Why Europe dominates the global chocolate market while Africa produces all the cocoa

    Europe has an insatiable appetite for chocolate. Not only is it the world’s biggest consumer of the sweet treat, it’s also the largest producer and exporter, thanks to a global market share of 70%. But while the continent dominates the finished-chocolate goods market, African countries are collectively the beating heart of that success, by producing…

    Can a European candy company make Butterfingers great again?

    When was the last time you ate a Butterfinger? Disappointing, right? They’re just overwhelmingly sweet, without a strong chocolate or peanut butter element—even though they’re supposed to taste like peanut butter. The texture registers less as “crispety, crunchety” and more like very sugary and slightly stale. That all may change as the candy bar gets…

While lingering concerns over the U.S.-China trade standoff and simmering geopolitical tensions from Syria to Russia are keeping global gold prices supported, U.S. consumers have more immediate calls on their attention. Stocks are holding near record highs, while the prospect of higher U.S. interest rates make non-yielding assets like bullion less attractive.
