Ukraine exported record high volume of sunflower oil


In August 2016 Ukraine exported 258.3 KMT of sunoil against 352.9 KMT in the previous month and 224 KMT in July 2015. Over 2015/16 season (September-August) Ukraine shipped 4479 KMT of sunoil against 3870 KMT in 2014/15, setting a new record.

According to UkrAgroConsult, among the key importers of Ukrainian sunoil were European countries (about 32% of all exports), slightly ousting India (31.6%). Large volumes were shipped in the destinations of China (14%) and Turkey (4%).

Ukraine managed to reach record exports in 2015/16 not only due to high demand from the key export markets, but also thanks to the diversification, in the first place due to the African and Middle East countries. Currently Ukrainian sunoil is exported to more than 200 countries.
