Germany now #1 rapeseed oil exporter

In Germany, UFOP reports that rapeseed exports of the EU-28 member states to third countries amounted to 260,000 tonnes in total. At the same time, trading of rapeseed oil within the Community was in excess of eleven times this quantity, totalling 3.3 million tonnes. According to Agrarmarkt Informations-Gesellschaft GmbH (AMI), Germany was the single most important supplier in the intra-Community trade, delivering around 823,400 tonnes. The country was followed, a long way behind, by Poland, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands. rapeeed-exports

In 2014 exports to third countries, German origins ranked second, at just under 46,100 tonnes, behind the Netherlands. The latter shipped 93,800 tonnes to non-EU countries, some of which was likely rapeseed oil from German oil mills. These figures highlight the role of the Netherlands as a hub of international trade. Great Britain took third place, exporting 29,600 tonnes to third countries.
