About Virtual Conference

18th International Conference FATS & OILS // FEEDS & GRAINS // ISTANBUL // BLACK SEA IN CRISIS  will be held on ONLINE on 31st March 2022, Thursday.

FOI-FGI 2022 V1 will give the attendants the opportunity to understand how the markets can evolve in terms of supply & price as a result of the war in Ukraine.

  • How the war between Russia & Ukraine can influence the World & Turkish markets for sunflower products & grain supplies?
  • Can Romania & Bulgaria play a role at all, in hunger of Turkey for oils/oilseeds & wheat?
  • How long  these extremely high commodity prices can last?
  • Will the sanctions brought to Russia be long lasting?
  • How will Ukraine’s 2022 sunflower crop turn out to be? Will there be global shortage of sun products in 2023 too?
  • How can Turkey’s exporting flourmilling industry maintain supplies as Russia stops wheat exports? Can supplies from alternative origins prevent Turkey from being competitive in the export markets?
  • Will, the poor African & South East Asian nations, be able to afford higher wheat flour prices?
  • Can Turkey’s sunflower products supply chain be broken until the new harvest?
  • Can the global sunoil supply deficit brought by Black Sea war encourge Turkey & Turkish consumers to wake up to alternative vagetable oils?
  • The world is switching to alternative vegoils as Ukraine moves out of the equation.  How high the global vegetable oil prices can climb as a result of this?
  • Where will Turkey, as a NATO member, find itself amid the crisis between Russia & the West? Can a Turkey, between a rock & a hard place, be forced to choose sides?
  • How can the war in the Black Sea influence Turkey’s national security & its economy?

All these matters & more will be addressed at the BLACK SEA CRISIS themed full-day virtual conference.
