Ukraine shipped record high volumes of sunmeal to foreign markets

Sunseed meal exports from Ukraine totaled more than 463 KMT in December 2016. The pace of export sales somewhat slowed from the previous month (515 KMT), although being up 4.4% from the same period last year (444 KMT). 
In general, the current season shows record high export figures: 1469.5 KMT of sunseed meal was supplied to foreign markets for the first four months of MY 2016/17, up 12.7% year-on-year, reports UkrAgroConsult.
The top importers of Ukrainian sunseed meal remain European countries (60% of total exports) and Belarus (12%). Remarkably, while the EU boosted purchases of this product, deliveries to Belarus decreased 6.3%. As noted before, Turkey reduced sunseed meal imports almost three and a half times and simultaneously increased sunseed imports.
