Sunmeal exports from Ukraine totaled 384 KMT in July 2017 that was the largest volume for this month. The pace of export sales slowed down to some degree against June 2017 (-2%), though being up 50% year-on-year.

In the current 2016/17 season, the leading importers of Ukrainian sunmeal not only remained unchanged, but even stepped up purchases.

As before, the top positions are held by European countries (56% of total exports), Belarus (11%), Turkey (8%) and Morocco (5%). Israel decreased sunmeal imports from Ukraine and thereby yielded its place to India, which accounts for 5% of the whole volume of exports.
