Dear Colleagues, participants and organizers of the ІХ International Conference "Fat and Oil Industry - 2010"!

The present conference, which has already became the traditional event, is the high-profile event of the year for all workers of the fat-and-oil complex.

The fat-and-oil complex of Ukraine is the singular sector of the agrarian production, which has the established the balance of economic interests of the Government, agricultural and processing spheres of fat-and-oil production and interests of the domestic consumer, due to imposition of the economical measures of market regulation.

Due to the effective protectionist policy of the Government, the fat-and-oil industry rather rapidly passed the crisis conditions, which the industry faced in 1997-1998 period. Annually, the country increases production of oilseeds, and enlarges the oilseed processing capacities: as of the beginning of 2010/11 МY the processing indices reached the level of 9.6 mln tonnes per year.

The outrunning growth of the processing capacities in Ukraine predetermines the severe competition between oilseed processing enterprises on the domestic market of oisleeds, and presents as the strengthening factor of the level of purchasing prices for oilseeds.

The requirements of the domestic market in oilseed products are also completely satisfied. The geography of sales of vegetable oils of Ukrainian origin continues constantly widening. The countries on the European Union, the Near East, North Africa, Asia and the CIS became the main consumers of the products on the world market. Ukraine exports sunflower oil to 88 countries of the world. In 2009/10 МY, India and Egypt became the largest importers of Ukrainian sunflower oil, for the first time, China started importing the product.

I am confident that the ІХ international Conference "Fat-and-Oil Industry -2010" will provide the excellent opportunity to the participants not only to review the issue of the present situation on the market and key tendencies of development of the fat-and-oil complex, but also assist to establish professional relationships between specialists of fat-and-oil enterprises, trading companies, scientifically-research institutions, producers of technical equipment and package for the fat-and-oil industry.

Dear participants and guests of the IX International conference "Fat-and-Oil Industry - 2010"!

On behalf of the entire team of the transshipment and processing complex for tropic oils "Delta Wilmar CIS", I greet you at the IX International conference "Fat-and-Oil Industry - 2010".

To date, fat-and-oil enterprises have one of the largest opportunities and prospects of development. Direct opinions exchange and acquaintance with the world experience allow the conference participants to work out forecasts of the business development, correct a leader's strategy on the vegetable oils market.

Traditionally, in Ukraine food is cooked on the basis of sunflower oil usage, however recently, the situation in the fat-and-oil industry has started to change. To date, production of margarine products started actively using tropic oils, especially palm oil and fractions, instead of sunflower oil. Usage of more economically effective tropic oils compared to sunflower oil enables margarine plants to produce the commodities, which are competitive at price and qualitative indices. Production of confectionery fats and fats for cooking of chips, snacks, which are especially required by fast food restaurants, is also considered as one of the most prospective directions for tropic oils consumption.

The complex for transshipment, transportation and processing of crude vegetable oils of the company "Delta Wilmar CIS" in the town Yuzhny also makes own contribution to the stable development of the fat-and-oil industry of Ukraine, establishes the up-to-date technologies, increases money inflows to the budget of the region and the country, develops the active partnership relations with various enterprises of Ukraine, the CIS and EU countries.

I wish fruitful constructive and creative work for benefit and prosperity of the economy of Ukraine and Ukrainian people to all the participants of the IX International conference "Fat-and-Oil Industry - 2010".
