Farmers Guardian parent company expands with new US partnership

Urner Barry is a 160-year old business information and price-reporting agency specialising in the protein markets.

 

Its market-leading digital service COMTELL provides accurate and unbiased price quotes, news and analysis for the red meat, poultry, egg and seafood markets.

 

Urner Barry is based in New Jersey and the deal announced forms an alliance between two very complementary businesses.

 

The combination of Briefing Media’s agribusiness analyst, sales and marketing operations across Europe with Urner Barry’s similar strength in the Americas creates a powerful global platform for the combined business.
