Ukraine. Vinnytsia fat-and-oil plant boosting production of high-olein unrefined vegoil
The Vinnytsia fat-and-oil plant, which belongs to ViOil Company, has processed 57 KMT of sunseed in the 2016/17 season that is up 27% year-over-year. The company is planning to crush 25 KMT of high-olein feedstock in March, reports UkrAgroConsult.
“Following the increasing demand in the global market, the Vinnytsia fat-and-oil plant is stepping up production of high-olein unrefined vegoil. The plant’s specialists have introduced a process scheme for producing deodorized high-protein sunoil. Our equipment allows packaging it in 1- and 5-liter PET-packs,” said the plant’s director Dmytro Chalenko.
As a reminder, the ViOil industrial group comprises two fat-and-oil plants – in Vinnytsia and Chernivtsi, whose combined capacity reaches 1.1 MMT of oilseeds a year. The group launched a second oil-extraction plant on the premises of the Vinnytsia extractor in 2013. The new facility can process sunseed, soybeans and rapeseed.
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.
