Flour production in Ukraine down 5% year-on-year

23.12.2016

Flour production in Ukraine continued shrinking in November 2016: 176.1 KMT was produced last month, or 6.4% less than in November 2015.

Ukrainian flour output for the eleven months of 2016 was down 5% year-on-year. About 1.749 MMT of flour was made from January till November against 1.843 MMT in the same period last year.

At the same time, production of bread and bakery goods has fallen by 6.5% to 1.028 MMT in 2016, while macaroni output is down 5.3% at 75.9 KMT.

This trend persists against the background of further growth of flour exports from Ukraine, once again confirming a decline in domestic consumption of flour and baked goods in the country.
