Euronext to launch dairy derivatives

Euronext is set to expand their commodities offering by launching dairy derivatives in milk, butter and whey. As of 31 March, the milk quotas are no longer in force in the EU and the exchange expects demand from users to hedge their risks and anticipate price movements. The dairy complex (futures only) is set to go live on 13 April 2015. No word yet on when options will be launched. The new contract on skimmed powdered milk replaces the old contract that failed to take off.  The new dairy complex competes with the offering by competitor Eurex that offers futures on whey, butter and powdered skimmed milk.

 Euronext instituted fee waivers for all three contracts untill 30 June 2015.
