About the conference


APK-inform Agency announces the sixteenth international conference "Fat-and-Oil Industry - 2017", to be held on October 26, 2017, in Kyiv, Ukraine.

General sponsor of the conference – SYNGENTA.

The season-2016/17 became a period of significant growth rates in the production and exports for the fat-and-oil industry of Ukraine. According to APK-Inform analysts, in the current marketing year the harvest volumes of sunflower seed in Ukraine reached 14.8 mln tonnes, and the production of sunflower oil will increase to 6.23 mln tonnes.

At the same time, the growing prices for soybean and palm oils, and the growth of sunflower oil total supply, contributed to some weakening of the prices. However, high demand for sunflower oil on the global market allowed not only keeping the exports at high level, but also achieving the record volumes at 5.7 mln tonnes.

What are the future prospects of the Ukrainian market of vegetable oils? Will reduction of the bonus between vegetable oils, at the expense of vigorous growth in palm oil prices, exert some influence on the further price environment? Whether demand from India and China become the key impact factors on the Ukrainian fat-and-oil market?

In order to solve the current challenges and determine the priorities of the season-2017/18, the conference will gather together many leading operators of the global market of sunflower oil - exporters and traders from the Black Sea region and the EU member-states, veg oil importers from Asia, as well as quality evaluation specialists on oilseed crops and its by-products, representatives of engineering companies, etc.

Key segments of the conference participants: oilseeds producers and crushers, traders, exporters from the Black Sea and EU countries, veg oils importers from Europe and Asia, government institutions, industry organizations, leading domestic and international agrarian experts, consumers of oilseeds and its by-products, representatives of scientific organizations, etc.
