Prices on sunflower oil have increased since the beginning of the year
The State Statistics Service informs, that the average price, set by producers of sunflower oil in Ukraine during the period January-November 2016, was 20,40 thousands UAH/t, which is more by 0,18 thousands UAH/t.
Despite a record harvest of sunflower seeds, such prices increasing is caused by the devaluation of the hryvnia.
