Ukraine. Market of high-oleic sunflower oil, 2017/18

04.09.2018

The 2017/18 drop in the sunseed crop and, consequently, in sunflower oil production and export caused high-oleic sunflower oil exports to also decrease compared to last season, reports UkrAgroConsult.

So, Ukraine exported only half of this product in the 2017/18 compared to the volume registered in the previous season.

The 2017/18 decline in high-oleic sunflower oil sales affected the overall structure of sunflower oil exports. High-oleic sunflower oil was supplied to more than 20 countries of the world in the 2017/18 season.

Invariably, the bulk of sunflower oil of this type goes to European countries. In MY 2017/18, their share in total exports increased. China purchased minor volumes of Ukrainian high-oleic sunflower oil.
