Ukrainian flour exports to China up 20%


Ukraine continues exporting flour at a faster pace than a year ago. 37.2 KMT of Ukrainian flour was supplied to foreign markets in January 2018, i.e. 27% more than in the same month last year, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Ukraine exported 281 KMT of flour during the first seven months of the current season that is up 18.5% year-on-year (237.1 KMT was in July-January 2016/17).

China is still the main export destination for Ukrainian flour, and its shipments to this market continue growing. Ukrainian exporters shipped 98.5 KMT of flour to China in the reporting period, i.e. already 20% more than for the entire last season. Thus, China’s share in Ukrainian flour exports has reached a record 35%.

In addition, Ukrainian exporters keep stepping up flour supplies to the markets of Angola, the UAE, Somalia, Singapore and others.
