Ukraine increased export of sunflower meal to China




Ukraine exported 390 thsd tonnes of sunflower meal in October 2022/23 MY, up by 10% m/m, that was the largest monthly volume shipped since the start of the war.  

Particularly, the higher export is based on increased deliveries to China, which imported 224 thsd tonnes of Ukrainian sunflower meal in October, the largest volumes since March 2022.  

The stronger demand from China supported the prices of sunflower meal in Ukraine in October.

APK-Inform expects the slowdown of shipments of meal to China in November due to lower trade activity in the deep-sea ports since late October amid unclear future of the “grain deal”.
