Export of sunflower oil

Sunflower oil has become one of the most effective drivers of development in the global agricultural market for Russia. At the same time, unlike grain, oil, as a processed product, is a more profitable export position. In 2020, Russia increased its sunflower oil exports by 37.8% to a record 2.26 million tons. For several years in a row, ASTON occupies a leading position in the Russian export market of sunflower oil, and in 2017 became the largest exporter of the Russian Federation.

Since 2016, the company has increased oil exports by 23%. So, in 2016/17, 468 thousand tons of sunflower oil in bulk and bottled sunflower oil were shipped to the world market, and in 2019/20 – 578 thousand tons. The traditional countries of supply are Egypt, Turkey and the CIS countries. In 2019 the company entered the new markets of China and India.
