UAE became the largest importer of Ukrainian flour in the 2019/20 season 4 November, 2019 at 15:11

According to preliminary data, this season’s flour exports from Ukraine had totaled 109.7 KMT by October 28, 2019, including 109 KMT – wheat flour and 0.7 KMT – flour of other grain crops.

This volume is 66% higher than in MY 2018/19, but still 31% below the 2016/17 record.

The United Arab Emirates became the largest importer in the first three months this season, when the country absorbed 29% of total flour exports from Ukraine, reports UkrAgroConsult. In the reporting period, the UAE already imported almost half as much as in the whole of MY 2018/19.

China is still the second biggest consumer of Ukrainian flour, though its purchases are slightly down.

Active demand is observed from countries which were reluctant buyers last season (Indonesia, Somalia).
