Backgrounds to the unit conditions

The standard conditions in the German grain trade are the most important contract for intra-German grain trade. But also in local foreign traffic, contracts are often concluded under uniform conditions. The conditions are published by the Association of Hamburg Grain Traders of the Hamburg Stock Exchange. The “Hamburg Grain Exchange” exists in Hamburg under the umbrella of the Hamburg Stock Exchange. This is organised by the “Verein der Hamburger Getreidehändler der Hamburger Börse e.V.”. (VdG) is operated.

The Exchange not only sets the prices for grain and brokers trading transactions, but also represents the interests of wholesalers and foreign traders in the grain industry. In particular, it also issues form contracts for trading in cereals, animal feed and pulses . In addition, the Association provides its own arbitration to settle disputes between members.
