SOFIA/KYIV. Not only has European trade association Coceral issued its production estimates for sunflower seeds in 2023 but the EU Commision has also revised its figures downwards for 2022. Buyers anticipate higher prices.

The EU Commission nominally revised its production estimates for 2022 downwards to 9.24 million mt at the end of December, which is nearly 11% down on the 10.36 million mt registered in 2021.
