Ukraine. In 2016/17 production of sunflower oil will reach a new record


Traditionally, at the end of the season sunflower oil production is decreasing in Ukraine. In August large and medium sized enterprises produced 71.3 KMT of sunflower oil compared to 214.1 KMT in July 2016 and 60.3 KMT in August 2015, reports UkrAgroConsult. Since the beginning of the season sunflower oil production totaled 3650.7 KMT (September-August), which was 124.4 KMT or 3.5% more than in the previous season. According to UkrAgroConsult`s estimates, small sized companies produced 720-730 KMT in 2015/16. 

As UkrAgroConsult’s experts expected, in 2015/16 the volume produced did not reach record level. Record volume of production was observed in 2013/14 – 4209 KMT.  New season is more promising due to the record sunflower crop and sufficient availability of crushing capacities, which should give higher results. According to UkrAgroConsult, in 2016/17 sunflower oil production will total no less than 5600 KMT.
