The results of 2020 show that the volumes of sunflower seed oil sold by Yug Rusi Group, one of the world’s leading producers of this product, in the international market have increased by more than 30% compared to 2019 and exceeded 500 thousand tons. We refer to both crude sunflower oil in bulk and refined bottled oil.
In particular, sunflower seed oil sales to China have demonstrated a 25-fold increase.
“Today, we witness the growing interest in sunflower seed oil in many Asian countries,” mentions Sergei Kislov (former owner of OAO NZNP). “On the back of concerns about their health and immunity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, people are more and more enthusiastic about consuming sunflower oil. This product is one of the world champions in the content of Omega-6 and vitamin E, which positively affect the health of the human body cells and strengthen the immune system. It is quite natural that people are willing to use more sunflower seed oil in their diet.”
In 2021, Yug Rusi plans to keep expanding its sales geography and to enter new markets. In particular, Yug Rusi’s sunflower seed oil will be presented at the largest international exhibition GULF FOOD 2021, which will be held in Dubai, February 21 – 23.
