South Africa: Oilseeds and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SF2022-0009

South Africa experienced an upward trend in oilseed production (soybeans and sunflower seeds) driven largely by rising oilseed prices, higher yielding cultivars, and a local demand-pull from investments in new oilseed processing plants. Post believes this upward trend will continue in marketing year 2022/23, to reach historically high oilseed production levels of almost 2.9 million metric tons. As a result, South Africa’s dependency on imports to meet the local demand for oilseed oil and meal will decline to record low levels.
