Ukraine. Sunoil production still up more than 40% from last season


Although sunseed crushing slowed down to some degree and sunoil production by large and medium-sized crushers decreased to 455 KMT in April 2017 (down 12% against March 2017), the product’s monthly output stays at a record level.

In total sunoil production by Ukraine’s large and medium-sized crushers reached 3897.6 KMT in September-April 2016/17, still up more than 40% from the same time a year ago (2753.1 KMT).

Taking into account this season’s trends, UkrAgroConsult believes Ukraine has potential for expanding sunoil production to 5.8 MMT by the season’s end.

Further prospects of the Black Sea oilseeds/vegoils market will be discussed at the V International Conference “Black Sea Oil Trade”, which will take place on September 19, 2017 in Hilton hotel, Kiev, Ukraine.
