About F.O. Licht

F.O. Licht is a leading business intelligence provider for the soft commodity markets, including ethanol, biofuels, sugar, molasses and coffee. The organisation traces its origins to Franz Otto Licht, who in 1861 established a "Statistical Bureau for the Beet Sugar Industry of the Customs Union" in Magdeburg, then the centre of German sugar production and trade.

The organisation's unrivalled insight into production, trade and policy dynamics informs the discussion at every Sugar & Ethanol Series event.
