Ukraine’s large and medium-sized crushers produced 17.5 thousand tons of margarine in October, down by 9.8% MoM (19.4 thousand tons) and by 23% YoY (22.7 thousand tons).
Margarine production in January-October8 was down by 3.4% YoY against a 0.6% delay reported a month earlier.
The seasonal rise in output indicators is observed this year, but it does not look so significant as a year ago. Taking this fact into account, experts reduced their forecast for this year’s total margarine production to 210-215 thousand tons. (UkrAgroConsult/Business World Magazine)
