Food Supply Chains in Ukraine

Before the war, Ukrainian agriculture produced 10% of GDP, employed 14% of the labor force and
accounted for 41% of total exports.

Ukraine has gradually become a major global supplier of agricultural commodities over the past two
decades. Before the full-scale Russian invasion, Ukraine supplied about 50% and almost two-thirds of
world exports of sunflower oil and meal respectively. The main destinations were China (48%), the EU
(25%) and Turkey (7%). Ukraine was the world’s third largest exporter of rapeseed and seventh largest
exporter of soya beans. It was the fourth largest exporter of maize in the world, with the main
destinations being China, the EU, Egypt, Iran and Turkey. Ukraine was the world’s seventh largest
exporter of wheat, with Egypt, Indonesia, Turkey, Pakistan and Bangladesh as its main destinations.
