Besecker Associates enters biodiesel arena
A new company has entered the biodiesel market, offering its increasingly valuable services to biodiesel producers. Lebanon, Ohio-based Besecker Associates is a newly formed start-up company offering risk management consultation and commodity procurement services to producers. Randall Besecker, CEO and president of the new firm, believes two of the biggest challenges to producers are the sourcing and origination of commodity feedstocks, along with managing the intrinsically volatile nature of the virgin oils and rendered fats markets. Besecker has more than 22 years experience in related fields, working with such companies as Cargill, Ferruzzi/Central Soya, Sara Lee Foods, Brock Associates and Frontier Risk Management.
