Ukraine. Mayonnaise production gained 2% in June


In June 2018, mayonnaise production by Ukraine's large and medium-sized plants totaled 10.5 MMT, i.e. it recovered to the level of June 2017.

Mayonnaise output in the reporting month was the second largest this year, but it still remained below the four-year average of 11.2 KMT. Although it gained almost 2% from May 2018, this could not offset the negative consequences of the May slump in mayonnaise production, reports UkrAgroConsult.

So, its volume in the January-June period has been staying down year-over-year for a second straight month (-2%), amounting to 58.4 KMT against 59.6 KMT a year ago. So, mayonnaise output remains persistently at a more than 15-year low.

An expected seasonal rise in mayonnaise production towards the end of the year still suggests that its 2018 total may reach 124-125 KMT - this would be as much as in the previous two seasons.
