LINDAU RETURNS TO ECUADOR AS SOUTH AMERICAN INTEREST IN SHRIMP FUTURES GROWS

 MINNEAPOLIS, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Minneapolis Grain Exchange President James H. Lindau will return to Guayaquil, Ecuador for a second time in three months to speak about shrimp futures and options. On Thursday, July 28 and Friday, July 29, he will be the keynote speaker at a meeting of South and Central American commodity exchange officials sponsored by Bolsa de Productos. Also on Friday, Lindau is scheduled to speak with shrimp producers and processors of the Fedecam organization.
 Nearly 20 percent of the world's farm-raised shrimp is produced in the Western Hemisphere, primarily in South America. "The strong interest in the shrimp contract expressed by the South American business community indicates the global scope of this contract," said Lindau.
 Ecuador is the leading producer of farm-raised shrimp in the Western Hemisphere. To Ecuador producers and processors, the shrimp contract represents the same profit protection enjoyed by American grain producers and processors. "Working with Fedecam on understanding the many benefits of using the shrimp futures contract is an exciting opportunity to expand the more than 100 years of trading experience at the Exchange," said Lindau.
