Background on FCStone
FCStone originated as 550 grain cooperatives known as Farmers Commodity Corporation (“FCC”). FCC continued to evolve, merging with Saul Stone, becoming FCStone and then in early 2007, FCStone went public. Later that year they acquired Chicago based Downes-O’Neill LLC, a leader in dairy price risk management. In October of 2009, International Assets Holding Corporation and FCStone united to become INTL FCStone.
FCStone’s roots in the dairy industry goes back twenty years to the Downes-O’Neill LLC start, and continues that long commitment to the dairy industry as the dairy/foods group of FCStone. FCStone’s emphasis is on assisting and educating the industry on how to manage margins. We have taken a lead role in liaising between exchanges and the industry to develop new tools for dairy domestically and internationally. We continue to be an advocate for the dairy industry, to innovate and educate, and develop new tools that better fit the needs of the dairy industry.
