Belarus suspends rape oil exports for up to three months

Belarus will not export any rape oil in the next two or three months, a spokesperson for the Belarusian State Food Industry Concern (Beldzyarzhkharchpram) told BelaPAN on Monday. The exports may be partially resumed in the future, the spokesperson said. Earlier in the day, Beldzyarzhkharchpram's head, Ivan Danchanka, told reporters in Minsk that the export of rape oil to the European Union would be "limited" in the following six months. The restrictions have been imposed because of a small shortage of rapeseeds, estimated at around 30,000 tons, Mr. Danchanka said. In the past, Belarus exported up to 50,000 tons of rape oil to European countries annually, he said. Belarus produces rape oil for not only human consumption but also for making biofuels, Mr. Danchanka said. By growing rape, people increase the country's energy security and reduce its dependence on imports, he noted.
