Products Rebrand (Jan 2023)

We at Intratec are constantly looking for ways to improve our products. From this perspective, we highly value feedback from our customers, as potential opportunities for further improvements.

In this context, some of the feedbacks we have received over the past weeks have led us to the conclusion that we could better describe two of our products. More specifically, to better reflect the data provided and to leave less room for misunderstandings, on January 31st we rebranded their names as follows:

  • Intratec Commodity Price Benchmarks is now called INTRATEC PRIMARY COMMODITY PRICES
  • Intratec Commodity Price Indexes is now called INTRATEC COMMODITY PRICE TRENDS

No other changes have been made to these products – their coverages, content and features are the same.
