Kazakhstan: processing volumes of oilseeds increased for the second month in a row




According to APK-Inform, the processing volumes of oilseeds increased the second months in a row in March in Kazakhstan. At the same time, the processed volumes are slightly lower since the beginning of 2020 compared to November-December 2019, partially due to the seasonal factor.

Thus, March vegetable oils production reached the record level in 2020 and totaled 45 thsd tonnes (+15% to February and +29% to January). 

“Moreover, the production of oils is significantly higher this season compared to the 2019/18 MY. Particularly, Kazakhstan produced almost 300 thsd tonnes of vegetable oils during 7 months of 2019/20 MY, up 20% compared to the same period in the previous season”, - added the analysts of the agency, Svitlana Kirichok.
