The Spearhead International business model mitigates the inherent risks of climate and the variable nature of commodity markets.

The range of latitudes in which we operate gives some security through diversity of climate and crop selection. Quality of soil is of paramount importance, as are local logistics, local economic conditions and political stability.

The risks inherent in commodity crop production can be mitigated by marketing strategies and by the use of hedging instruments. Some products such as potatoes are grown largely on contract, others are sold forward and, where there is no physical market, the futures market is used when appropriate to reduce exposure.
