Ukraine. Key buyers of linseed reduced imports


Linseed exports from Ukraine totaled 3.4 KMT in November 2017/18 that is down one-quarter from October (4.6 KMT) and 29% less than in November 2016/17 (4.8 KMT).

The current marketing year sees a more than 7% decrease in export shipments against the same time last season, and this trend has been observed for a second season in a row, reports UkrAgroConsult. As a reminder, despite sluggish deliveries in the first months of MY 2016/17, Ukrainian linseed exports closed it at a record total of 63 KMT.

The current 2017/18 season features a decline in Ukrainian linseed shipments to the top importers: Vietnam absorbed 43% of total exports and the EU purchased 31%. Overall, linseed is exported to 37 countries, including new end markets opened last season.
