Tallage is a French-based provider of business-critical intelligence for the grain, oilseeds, durum wheat, animal feed, biofuels and malting barley sector. Trading primarily as Stratégie grains the company has, for nearly 30 years, acted as the reference data source for the agri-food chain across Europe.

Stratégie grains’ country level supply and demand forecasts are relied on by some 350 corporate customers across farm production; food and feed manufacture; ingredients; seed and fertiliser manufacturing, commodity trading & transport / logistics. They provide unique market data which allows the agri-food chain to forecast price movements and build their purchasing, physical trading, hedging and risk management strategies, says AgriBriefing.

Established in 1993 by Andrée Defois and her partner Jean-Christophe Paquier, the business is supported by an experienced team of specialist grain, oilseed and crop analysts. Both Andrée and Jean-Christophe will remain with the business post the acquisition, alongside the wider team.

Rory Brown: “We have long admired the work that Andrée, Jean-Christophe and their superb team do in this sector.”

Rory Brown, CEO of AgriBriefing said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome the team at Stratégie grains to the AgriBriefing portfolio. The European grain markets are becoming an ever more important part of the global agri-economy and we have long admired the work that Andrée, Jean-Christophe and their superb team do in this sector. The reports Stratégie grains produce are well respected in the industry and the analysis that they provide is business critical and moves markets.”

“Over the past 10 years we have been steadily building AgriBriefing as the leading global provider of market data, pricing and intelligence products for the agribusiness sector. The Stratégie grains business will sit closely alongside many of our other brands across the agri-food supply chain.”

Andrée Defois, president of Tallage said: "Since the creation of Stratégie grains in 1993, our mission has been to steadily address the evolving needs of our customers - operators across the grain market. The increasing interconnection between markets, combined with the greater professionalism and sophistication of companies in the agri-economy sector, generate many new challenges and opportunities for our business."

"The work carried out in recent months, alongside AgriBriefing's management, to study the possibilities for collaboration convinced us that this group has the ideal structure to allow us to develop our models and data to meet these challenges.”

“Joining with AgriBriefing will enable us to continue the evolution and the development of our products and services, thanks to strong synergies with the other complementary brands in the group.”

“A new chapter opens.”
