Founded in 1884, it serves as a forum for the conduct of trade negotiations in several markets including grain, oilseed, agricultural products, and their by-products. The grain market here is the biggest and most important in Argentina and provides reference prices for the national and international grain markets. Most of the country’s cereals, oilseeds, and soybeans are traded domestically. The region around Rosario contains the world’s largest concentration of oilseed crushing plants and its ports handle more than 90% of the Argentine export of soybeans and soybean derivatives.
