Rapeseed oil production in Russia at a three-year high


Russian crushers produced 32.5 KMT of rapeseed oil in May 2018 against 32.2 KMT in April 2018 and 23 KMT in May 2017. Even towards the end of the season, the monthly volumes of rapeseed crushing remain steadily higher than a year ago.

Overall, rapeseed oil production increased almost 21% in July-May 2017/18, to 351.2 KMT versus 290.6 KMT in the same period last year. Owing to a heavy rapeseed crop in 2017, this season’s rapeseed oil output is still at a three-year high.
