Food Business News recently reported on Rabobank’s Food and Agribusiness Research and Advisory (FAR) predictions for an impending Trump presidency. The report suggests a few ways the food industry might approach and assess the short- and long-term effects of the incoming administration.
Markets will remain volatile, Rabobank predicts, as long as uncertainty persists about the impact of Trump’s policy decisions. Global trade agreements are likely to be put on hold, based on Trump’s criticisms of NAFTA and the TPP.
Rabobank suggests that it’s also likely the next farm bill will move toward business sustainability and away from conservation concerns. Trump immigration policies, too, may strongly impact American agriculture.
