Subscribe and don't miss an issue.

Our July/August 2017 issue focuses on oilseeds by taking a look at the canola industry in South Africa and the impact of the EU’s phase-out of conventional biofuels on rapeseed production in Europe.

We examine the battle between the dairy and spreads industry as the EU prepares to reform its Common Agricultural Policy.

On the subject of renewable materials, we look at the rise of plant-based alternatives to squalene, traditionally derived from shark liver oil.

And we report on the latest news and market trends which emerged from the recent OFI India 2017 conference and exhibition.

The July/August issue also features our regular usual mix of news, event listings and statistics.
