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.

India still occupies the first position as in the previous season (37%), said R.Rybchinskiy.
