New Delhi: India’s vegetable oil imports in June rose 31.5% from a year earlier to 780,679 tonnes, a leading trade body said on Tuesday.
Imports in the eight months of the oil year starting November were 5.82 million tonnes, up from 3.56 million tonnes in the year-ago period, data released by the Solvent Extractors’ Association of India showed.
Traders had expected the rise in edible oil imports would slow to 21% in June from a year ago as purchases had doubled in the previous two months.
