Oils & Fats International Issue | June 2016

Our June 2016 issue reports from the recent OFI India 2016 conference and exhibition and takes a look at the challenges facing the world’s largest edible oils importer. With imports now accounting for nearly 60% of India’s consumption requirements, the country needs to look at raising its oilseed productivity, expanding its oil palm area and capitalising on factors such as its non-GMO soya status and near monopoly on castor oil production.

We also focus on bleaching earths and their role in edible oil processing, particularly advancements and developments including the introduction of speciality bleaching earths to lower levels of the potentially carcinogenic 3-MCPD chemical compound and new uses for spent bleaching earths.

In addition, we examine future opportunities for oleochemicals and estimated global capacities for fatty acids and fatty alcohols; and how Moroccan olive oil is making headway in Chinese markets, including how one company is tapping into the boom in Chinese olive oil consumption.

Our June issue also features our annual plant, equipment and technology listing of companies and their activities; and our usual mix of news, event listings and statistics.

Bonus distributions will be made at the Oleofuels 2016 conference on 21-22 June in Liverpool, UK and the 13th Oleochem Outlook conference from 13-14 July in Chengdu, China
