The war in Ukraine is disrupting strained global supply chains.
One commodity that has been hit is cooking oil. Together, Ukraine and Russia supply lots of it.
Below are local impacts in the US, UK, Indonesia, Germany, the Netherlands, India.
The global cooking-oil supply is taking a hit from the war in Ukraine, and it’s being felt all over the world, from Indonesian markets to fish-and-chips shops in the UK.
Russia and Ukraine collectively export close to two-thirds of the world’s sunflower oil, a main ingredient in many packaged and prepared foods, which has made finding sunflower and other vegetable oils more difficult, putting more pressure on a market already strained by extreme weather and droughts.
International consumers are struggling to stock up or find replacements: Shelves in Spain are empty, consumers in India are buying in bulk, and grocery stores in the UK have limited the number of bottles people can buy.
