"The only constant, is change"


The world's agriculture markets are changing at an unprecedented pace, driven by population growth, climate change, higher calorie and protein diets and more accessible international trade and transportation.

Farms have become sophisticated businesses, using advanced data sources to optimise their operations. The feed and food industries are in need of additional risk management solutions to hedge against increasing feedstock price volatility.


Census has been founded to provide the global agri industry with market intelligence and pricing data to power the next generation of commercial contracts and derivative instruments.

We provide physical price indices for key locations, that can be used as a reference for physical spot or term contracts, and to settle associated derivative contracts to better manage risk.
