I don't want to measure myself against the famous saying of the great German politician and former chancellor - but I would like to borrow it, especially in these difficult, even dangerous times: Without cohesion, everything is nothing. That is exactly how we all feel right now. But the motto does not only apply to us in the company, but also to our partners in the countries of origin, in the supply business and in trade. Let's be honest, if someone had said in 2019 that we were threatened by a global pandemic that has still not been fully overcome, a Russian war of aggression in Europe, an energy crisis worse than that of the 1970s, and inflation rates of ten percent with explosive company bankruptcies ... He would probably have been declared insane.
Now we have to keep a cool head together and get through it. That's why we have invested all the more in our communications, in our product range, in our manpower. And, of course, we are keeping a closer eye than ever on developments in the markets. In this year's last PMM market report, we also provide information on harvests, prices, trends and problems. Read what's going on, what matters. I wish you as relaxed and calm minutes as possible.
Yours, Thomas Schneidawind
