Kazakhstan continues exporting sunseed at a record pace


Kazakhstan supplied 18.3 KMT of sunseed to foreign markets in January 2017, or almost half as much as in the previous month and up 11.5% from January 2016 (16.4 KMT).

As UkrAgroConsult expected, the export statistics of the five months of 2016/17 shows record results for this period of year: 95.6 KMT, or up more than 19.3% year-on-year (80.1 KMT).

Having increased purchases of Kazakh sunseed to 45.8 KMT this season against 38 KMT a year, China shares the top position with Uzbekistan, which imported the same amount of sunseed (45.8 KMT). Noteworthy, these countries account for some 96% of total exports.

Further prospects of the Black Sea oilseeds/vegoils market will be discussed at the V International Conference “Black Sea Oil Trade”, which will take place on September 19, 2017 in Hilton hotel, Kiev, Ukraine.
