Turkey bringing up a competitor for Ukraine in the flour market

30.05.2017

This past week, the market was set in turmoil by a reported new turn in the Russo-Turkish agri-trade relations. According to trade sources, Turkey’s purchases of Russian wheat will not exceed 20-25% of the country’s import needs, while Russian sunoil will fill at most 15-30% of its needs. The decision may impact the market significantly because the wheat share reached 75% in previous seasons.
