Oils & Fats International Issue
OFI November/December 2019
Our November/December 2019 issue reports on the EU biodiesel industry and how production of HVO is set to rise, but conventional biodiesel fall due to strong competition from cheaper Argentine and Indonesian imports.
We examine Saudi Arabia’s edible oil industry and its dependence on imports, focusing on the main ports which serve the kingdom.
On the topic of oilseeds, we look at the most recent work on sequencing the peanut genome, which will pave the way for the development of new varieties with improved traits such as pest and drought resistance.
The September/October issue provides a round-up of the latest news and developments relating to instrumentation, testing and standards.
Focusing on the USA, we report on the country’s olive oil industry, its stringent certification standards and how recently announced US tariffs on packaged Spanish olive oils may affect importers and consumers.
