Ukraine. Mustard market continued recovering this year


Mustard production by large and medium-sized plants of the fat-and-oil industry grew to 828 MT in October 2017, or 14% more than in the previous month (725 MT) and up 32.5% from October 2016 (625 MT). Production amounted to 6.7 KMT in January-October, or up 15% year-on-year (5.8 KMT in January-October 2016).

As a reminder, the mustard market decline, which had persisted for a few years, was overcome in 2016. As expected, the current year of 2017 shows further growth, up to a five-year high. UkrAgroConsult predicts mustard output to exceed 8 KMT in 2017.
