Mayonnaise output in the reporting month was the second largest this year, but it still remained below the four-year average of 11.2 KMT. Although it gained almost 2% from May 2018, this could not offset the negative consequences of the May slump in mayonnaise production, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Production volumes in January-June stood down year-over-year for a second straight month (-2%), amounting to 58.4 KMT against 59.6 KMT a year ago. So, mayonnaise output remains persistently at a more than 15-year low.

An expected seasonal rise in mayonnaise production towards the end of the year still suggests that its 2018 total may reach 124-125 KMT - this would be as much as in the previous two seasons.
