Ukraine. Margarine production up in 2017 for the first time in two years


Ukraine’s large and medium sized crushers produced 17.8 KMT of margarine in February 2016, or up 4.7% from the previous month) and up 28% from February 2016. In January-February 2017, margarine production increased 28.4% year-on-year (34.8 KMT) and actually reached the level of 2015, when 35 KMT of margarine was produced for the two months.

Although the beginning of 2017 was less productive than the latter half of 2016, the margarine market, as UkrAgroConsult expected, shows an upward trend for the first time in two years.

Further prospects of the Black Sea oilseeds/vegoils market will be discussed at the V International Conference “Black Sea Oil Trade”, which will take place on September 19, 2017 in Hilton hotel, Kiev, Ukraine.
