Oils & Fats International Issue | OFI May 2019

Subscribe and don't miss an issue.

Our May 2019 issue focuses on shortenings and how they must offer better functionality, as well as replacing partially hydrogenated oils. We also look at how the US soyabean industry has worked to develop new shortenings utilising high oleic soyabean oil.

On the topic of Eastern Europe, we offer a snapshot of the Romania oils and fats industry, an increasingly important producer and exporter of oilseeds strategically located on the Black Sea.

Focusing on Central Asia, we look at how several states in the region are looking to boost oilseed production.

The issue gives an update on the latest news and developments around the world relating to projects and technology.

And we report from the annual Price Outlook Conference (POC) in Malaysia, which focused heavily on rising palm oil demand and combating the negative image the industry faces.

The May issue includes OFI’s regular mix of news, event listings and statistics.
