The 2022 Q2 Report marks the 3rd report published by NASGW. Others include the 2021 Annual Report and the Q1 Report. These reports offer a regular review of current marketing conditions through distributor shipments, a level of insight that has not been previously available to the industry.

The insight is invaluable.”
