Also, R.Rybchinskiy reminded that the fat-and-oil industry of Ukraine is export-oriented.
The country consumes nearly 15% of the produced sunflower oil, and exports more than 85%. In 2013/14 MY the export potential of Ukrainian sunflower oil is estimated at 3.9 mln tonnes, which is also the record high index for the country, said R.Rybchinskiy.
