Support for EU growers
The massive imports of oilseeds from Ukraine to the EU bring new challenges. For example, 892,000 mt of sunflower seeds were imported from Ukraine in 2022, compared to just 3,000 mt the year before. The mass of imported goods makes it difficult for local farmers to sell their sunflower seeds at reasonable prices. The EU Commission is now working to support the affected growers in the countries bordering Ukraine (including Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland and Slovakia).
In the long term, this drastic change is also critical for Ukraine. Expo
