In 2016-2017 MY the export volumes of Ukrainian flour to African countries and the Middle East significantly increased.
It is worth noting the increase in purchases by such countries as Somalia, which imported more than 30 thousand tons in July-May 2016-2017 MY, against 1.8 thousand tons in the whole previous season; Angola – over 28 thousand tons, against 7.6 thousand tons; the United Arab Emirates – almost 23 thousand tons, against 3.3 thousand tons; and Lebanon – over 6.2 thousand tons, against 1.6 thousand tons.
As for the qualitative indices of flour products, most Ukrainian grain processors operating on the export market, noted that the figures mainly satisfied the requirements of major importers. At the same time, Turkey remained the main competitor of Ukraine in the market sector, and during many years the country has successfully developed its position in the rating of global exporters of flour products. To date, Ukraine is losing to Turkey in both quality of flour and pricing policy. (APK-Inform/Business World Magazine)
