Indicators of soybean processing in March 2017 showed only small fluctuations relative to the results of the corresponding month of the previous year. At the same time, as a whole, by the end of September-March 2016/17, soybean processing volumes in Ukraine decreased by 5% in comparison with the same period of the previous season. In our opinion, the decrease in the volume of soybean processing in the current season is due, firstly, to the active export of raw material, and secondly to the decrease in demand for soybean meal / cake from the country"s livestock sector, in particular, the poultry sector.

The leader among the soybean processors in September-March 2016/17 is Astarta. The company accounts for about 25% of the total production of soybean oil and soybean meal / cake in Ukraine.
