CME Group and SGS Open Cocoa Grading Facility in Amsterdam

CME Group and SGS announced the opening of a new cocoa grading facility in Amsterdam. Physically delivered, euro-denominated Cocoa futures were launched on CME Europe in March this year. Since launch it has traded more than 6,000 contracts and has over 1,000 contracts in open interest. This was complemented in June 2015 by the introduction of Cocoa options. Amsterdam was selected as one of three delivery ports for CME Group's new Cocoa futures contracts. Futures markets in cocoa are essential to manage risks in the complex supply chain involved in chocolate and related manufacturing across Europe. For a futures contract to be an effective hedge for physical cocoa, the process of sampling and grading cocoa held in storage must be rigorous.
