Ukraine. VIОIL remains a top rape oil producer


ViОil Group produced more than 15 KMT of unrefined rape oil last year, the company’s website says.

Reportedly, the Vinnytsia fat-and-oil plant processed a total some 37.2 KMT of rapeseed in MY 2016/17.

The company’s products were all sold abroad. Traditionally, the main buyer of ViОil’s rape oil is the European Union. In the EU, rape oil accounts for 60% of vegoils used in the industrial segment, reports UkrAgroConsult.

“Rape oil is used in Europe in production of both foods and biofuels. The possession of an ISCC certificate and close geographic proximity to the largest end market give our company additional competitive advantages,” Vinnytsia fat-and-oil plant director Dmytro Chalenko explained.
