While sunseed processing and sunoil output in Ukraine show a record fast pace, hitting new highs every month, soybean crushing and soyoil production by oil extractors keep lagging behind last year.
Large and medium-sized crushers in Ukraine produced 14.5 KMT of soyoil in November against 15.7 KMT in November 2015. 34.3 KMT of soyoil was made at these facilities in the first three months of the season (September-November) – down by 20% YoY.
It should be pointed out that such a slump in production happened for the first time in five seasons. (UkrAgroConsult/Business World Magazine)
