Ukraine. ViOil begins processing high-oleic sunflower seed


In March 2019, one of ViOil’s oil extraction plants begins processing high-oleic sunflower seed. It is set to process 35 KMT of the feedstock, reports UkrAgroConsult.

The decision stems from strong foreign demand for high-oleic sunflower oil. The company is now exporting the product to Europe, Asia. America and Australia.

Reportedly, crusher demand for quality high-oleic sunflower seed prompts Ukrainian farmers to expand plantings of this crop. In the new season, it will occupy a one-third larger area than last year (it totaled 300 Th ha in 2018). With almost equal costs and yields, the premium for high-oleic sunflower seed is USD 50-60/MT.
