Ukraine exported a record amount of flour to the UAE


Ukrainian exporters supplied 25.5 KMT of flour to foreign markets in January 2017, or 22% more than in January 2016, reports UkrAgroConsult.

For the seven months in 2016/17, Ukraine exported 11% more flour than in the same period in MY 2015/16 (223.1 KMT against 201.2 KMT in July-January 2015/16).

Ukrainian flour deliveries to African countries continue to expand. In particular, 24 KMT of flour was already exported from Ukraine to Angola that is more than for the entire last season (7.5 KMT). Roughly 17 KMT was shipped to Somali against 1.9 KMT in MY 2015/16.

Apart from African countries, another peculiarity of Ukrainian flour exports in the current season is considerably increased demand for this product from the UAE. Ukraine supplied more than 16 KMT of flour to this market in the period under review, or five times as much as exported in MY 2015/16.
