Ukraine’s sunoil production hit a new high in October


Ukrainian large and medium sized crushers produced 515.6 KMT of sunoil in October 2016, up 115.8 KMT (29%) from last month (399.8 KMT) and up 122.6 KMT (31%) from October 2015 (393 KMT).

According to UkrAgroConsult’s estimates, small mills accounted for over 100 KMT of October 2016 sunoil production. The 2016/17 season’s bumper sunseed crop allowed crushers to make an unprecedented monthly amount of sunoil. Crushers say this result was achieved even in the conditions of incompletely loaded crushing capacities.

UkrAgroConsult keeps its previous forecast for 2016/17 sunoil production unchanged at a record 5.6 MMT.
