Our May 2017 issue examines the oils and fats sector in Ukraine, a world leader in the processing and production of sunflower oil.

The issue takes a look at activated carbon and its use in edible oil bleaching.

In our feature on commodity trading, we give a ‘back to basics’ explanation of futures and options trading and the role of futures exchanges in our industry.

In our technology focus, we write about some of the latest plant and technology developments around the world.

We also look at the production of argan oil in Morocco and its use in food preparation and as a highly-prized cosmetic ingredient.

And we report from the recent Palm & Lauric Oil Price Outlook Conference (POC 2017), in which experts predict a 6M tonne rise in world palm oil production this year.

As always, our May issue features our regular usual mix of news, event listings and statistics.
Bonus distributions of this issue will be made at the 14th Oleochem Outlook Conference in Nanjing, China on 12-13 July.
