Ukraine’s agribusiness: Investment opportunity

Analytical study

Ukraine is a flagship in grain, oilseed, and vegoil supply through building the reputation of a trustworthy source of raw materials. Rising exports attract potential investors not only into crop growing itself, but also into the related sectors, incl. inputs, crop conditioning, transportation and logistics, and transshipment.

It is worth noting that raw material prices are rather volatile with sales margin is not always high. This is one of many reasons for the investments not only in the raw material segment but also in into processing, in food industry.

Analyzing its customers’ inquiries for over 25 years of operation in the market, UkrAgroConsult made a reliable conclusion that investments have been focused into oilseed crushing and sea export terminal construction (apart from crop cultivation itself).

The most successful companies now invest in other links of the entire value chain aiming at better growing practices, build and upgrade inland elevators, buying of railcars, processing facilities.

The land market also opens up wide investment opportunities.

UkrAgroConsult suggests a few scenarios of further business development for companies seeking to retain their competitiveness, increase performance, develop and diversify business operations.
