The commodity futures markets known as the food group contain food related items such as: coffee, cocoa, sugar, and orange juice. This group behaves very similarly to the grain markets. Planting tends to be the strongest time of the year, while highs are typically made during pollination, and just prior to harvest the lows are seen. Futures contracts on the regulated commodity exchanges are a way to get positioned to trade food commodities.

One of the reasons that the food group tends to be separated from the grain commodities is that the bulk of the production comes from outside of the United States. Without a USDA like organization to issue production estimates, price movements in the food group can be very volatile.
