Third Coast Commodities, LLC was formed in 2013 with one simple message in mind: To start a new physical merchant with the combined goals of bringing transparency to the world of physical derivative commodities and reducing risk. Since August of 2013 we have added four full-time traders which service over 200 companies nationally and internationally in the broader Fats Oils and Grease (FOG) industry: commercial crush, biofuels, restaurant recycling, oleochemical, animal feed, and heating oil markets. Above all else, we aim to give our clients insight and certainty in trading their industry by-products while ensuring ease of transaction. We service by truck, rail or shore tank or export. We are proud members of ICIS, AFOA, and NRA.
