We're always tracking new commodities and markets and developing new models for our buying community and we'd love to hear from you. Have a suggestion for a model?  Know of a publicly traded company that should be included in our index?  


Since 2001, ProPurchaser has been a trusted source for thousands of procurement professionals.  ProPurchaser tracks commodity cost drivers that affect suppliers' productions costs, and alerts members as changes occur.  When suppliers' costs fall, members use this information to negotiate lower prices; when costs rise, they fend off unsupportable increases.
