Subscribe and don't miss an issue.

Our July/August 2018 issue looks at how the automotive industry is using renewable materials derived from oilseeds in all parts of cars, from body panels to interior components and electrical wiring.

We focus on the development of the frying oil market in China, which is expected to rise by 7-8%/year to reach 17-18M tonnes in 2020.

We report on how new technologies, collectively know as genome engineering (GE), are unlocking new ways to improve oil crops while avoiding the stigma associated with GMOs.

On the subject of butter, we look at what led to last year’s butter shortage.

And we examine how Ukraine could emerge as a new major palm oil re-export hub to East European markets, due to its location on the Black Sea.

The July/August issue also includes OFI’s regular mix of news, event listings and statistics.

A bonus distribution of this issue will be made at the:
