Vegoil production in Russia and Kazakhstan remains at its peak value


RUSSIA. 499.5 KMT of vegoils were produced in Russia in April, i.e. 4.8% less than in March (524.6 KMT) but 4.9% more than in April 2017 (476.2 KMT).

In Russia, overall vegoil production in September-April 2017/18 increased 4.5% to 4200.2 KMT (a record volume for this period) against 4018.7 KMT a year ago, reports UkrAgroConsult.

As a reminder, this gain resulted mostly from growing production of sunoil as the main oilseed product accounting for over 80% of total vegoil output. At the same time, soybean oil production is also at its peak level this season.  

Russia produced 3409 KMT of sunoil in September-April 2017/18, i.e. 4.4% more than in the same period in MY 2016/17 (3264 KMT).
