0 45

Ukraine’s grain, oilseed, vegetable oil exports rose 22.7% in July versus June to 2.66 million tonnes.

Grain exports slumped since the start of the war because its Black Sea ports, a key route for shipments closed; driving up global food prices and prompting fears of shortages in Africa and the Middle East.

An agreement was concluded last month to unblock Ukrainian seaports and allow the departure of ships carrying grain.

July’s exports included 412,000 tonnes of wheat, 183,000 tonnes of barley, 1.1 million tonnes of corn; 362,100 tonnes of sunseed and tonnages of other commodities, the ministry said.

However, in a separate statement the ministry said Ukrainian grain exports were still down almost 52% year-on-year at 2.2 million tonnes so far in the 2022/23 season.
