Ukraine reduced palm oil imports 21 June, 2019 at 12:06

Palm oil imports in May 2019 hit a season low of 12.4 KMT. Palm oil purchases in September-May 2018/19 dropped for the first time in four seasons, reports UkrAgroConsult. The main reason is a decrease in production of cheese products.

They are forecast to close the season down some 5% year-on-year.

Growth in supplies from key exporters is registered in Malaysia (+7.3%) and Indonesia (+9.2%).

Resumption of palm oil purchases is seen from Singapore and Latvia.

Please be reminded that on September 5, UkrAgroConsult will host a major meeting point of the oilseed industry operators - the 7th International Conference “Black Sea Oil Trade-2019” in Hilton, Kyiv, Ukraine.
