Ukraine. Sunflower oil exports stay at a record level


In January 2018/19, sunflower oil exports from Ukraine totaled 496 KMT, or 16% less than in the previous month. However, they hit an all-time high for January. In the first five months of this season, exports set a new record of 2456 KMT against 2134 KMT a year earlier (+15%).

UkrAgroConsult left its estimate for total 2018/19 exports of sunflower oil unchanged.

The list of top importers of Ukrainian sunflower oil has undergone no significant changes. India boosted purchases and actually caught up with last year – the country’s export share expanded to 38%. At the same time, substantial increases are seen in shipments to Iraq and Egypt.

In addition, EU importers stepped up purchases to 660.8 KMT from 628 KMT they bought a year earlier.
