The Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) made a record high volume and value of sales on December 1, 2020, amounting 427.9 million Br. Established eight years ago, the ECX traded 293 million Br worth of non-coffee commodities on the same date. About 3.5 million small-scale farmers sell their commodities through the ECX, which trades 11 types of agricultural commodities. The ECX trades coffee, white pea bean, red kidney beans, sesame, soya bean, white pigeon peas, pinto beans, green mung beans, niger seed, maize and chickpeas. Recently, the ECX has dedicated a special window for agro-processors to soya beans. The window enables the manufacturers to get the legume from the central market.
