Corn starch production continues to increase in Ukraine. During first three month of 2016 Ukraine produced 14.36 KMT of corn starch, which is 39% more than over the same period of last year – 10.34 KMT.
Along with this corn starch exports increase even faster. Over the first half of the season (October-March) Ukraine exported more than 15.6 KMT. This is 55% more than over the same period of 2014/15 MY (10.05 KMT).
Indonesia remains the main importer of Ukrainian corn starch. Russia gradually increases its purchases, and bought 5.06 KMT during the first half of the season, which is still less than for the same period last season – 7.1 KMT.
Growing demand for Ukrainian corn starch will possibly promote its production in Ukraine. (blackseagrain.net)
