Russia. Sunflower oil prices are pressured by world market and bumper sunseed crop


The completion of the harvest has affected the Russian sunseed market. Raw material supply is on the rise along with some downward price adjustment, report UkrAgroConsult’s analysts.

In general, the current market situation is quite acceptable to crushers, even though sunseed product prices are low. Major sunseed holders refuse to sell their commodity right now because they expect a price increase.

Sunflower oil is still pressured by international markets under the conditions of an expected bumper sunseed crop and growing supply of the finished product.
