Russia. Domestic market strengthened demand for rapeseed products


Rapeseed oil exports totaled 26.8 KMT in September 2016/17, or double the volume exported in the previous month (13.1 KMT), reports UkrAgroConsult. At the same time, rapeseed oil shipments to foreign markets shrank by 1.9 KMT (6.6%) against September 2015/16.

Key users of rapeseed oil are Norway with an export share of 65%, Lithuania with 14%, and Latvia with 12%. At the same time, insignificant parcels were shipped to Moldova and Germany.

Downward trend appears in rapeseed product export availabilities in 2016/17 due to strengthening domestic demand for processed oilseed products.
