NOPA announces second international fat and oil conference “FOC 2023: Fat and Oils Conference” in Almaty




National Oilseed Processors Association of Kazakhstan announces second international fat and oil conference “FOC 2023: Fat and Oils Conference”.

This year we will meet on May 11 in Almaty, traditionally in InterContitental Almaty hotel.

APK-Inform is a general media partner of the event

The possibility to meet together at one site for all participants of the oil and fat market – processors, agricultural producers, representatives of relevant ministries and science, as well as industry associations – is very valuable. The challenges faced by the fat and oil business require the development of a unified market strategy for the successful development of the industry.

The existing shortage of raw materials on the global market, according to experts' forecasts, will preserve in the new season, because leading exporting countries – Ukraine and Russia – expect a reduction in the sunflower seeds harvest. And already in 5 months, Kazakhstan has supplied as many oilseeds to global markets as in the entire last season. Besides, the production of sunflower oil in the country doubled year-on-year. In addition to this, the export duty on sunflower seeds, which replaced the tariff quotas, this year should demonstrate its effectiveness in ensuring food security and stabilizing the oil and fat market.

In general, the situation is difficult but very interesting! Kazakh processors are forced to work in such difficult conditions, increasing production and exports, developing new markets, and at the same time fulfilling the task of ensuring the country's food security.

All these and many other questions will be discussed at the second international fat and oil conference "FOC 2023: Fats and Oils Conference". The opportunity to participate in the event, which will bring together almost all processors in Kazakhstan, learn about market trends and forecasts, make promising contacts and conclude contracts is worth a lot!

We invite You to take part in the conference! 

You can see how the first conference “FOC 2022: Fats and Oils Conference" was held, which was attended by more than 100 representatives of the oilseed sector, on the website.
