Fat-and-Oil Industry of Ukraine: From raw materials to processed products

03.04.2015

Although available crushing capacities exceeded Ukraine’s total sunseed crop by 4 MMT back in 2014, the big companies have announced further expansion of their crushers. This is quite understandable: UkrAgroConsult’s calculations indicate that the highest utilization of crushing capacities is usually observed in plants with a capacity of over 1000 MT a day. At the moment, large companies are operating with quite high capacity utilization rates (75-80%). This confirms that larger-scale production is advantaged in Ukraine’s fat-and-oil industry from the efficiency viewpoint.
