Ukraine. Veg Oil Handling in the Black Sea Ports

Ukrainian veg oil production and exports grow rapidly from year to year, with the bulk of exports handled through Black Sea ports. Veg oil port handling increased by 1.5 times in 2015-2019 to 6.7 MMT, hitting a record in 2019/20. This was enabled by construction of new transshipment terminals.

UkrAgroConsult is sure that veg oil crushing and handling in Ukraine’s Black Sea ports will remain highly attractive for investment in the coming 5 years.

This is confirmed by a recent acquisition of Everi terminal in the Mykolaiv port by Glencore Agriculture Limited.

Moreover, in our opinion, new deals and investment projects are coming in the near future.

In our comprehensive study, you will obtain all necessary data on key trends in vegetable oil production, exports, and handling. It will provide quality analysis of the whole chain from oilseed supply to the extraction plant to vegetable oil transshipment through Black Sea ports.

What new facilities are projected to be put into operation and how this will affect the market shares of major fat-and-oil companies.
