by Zainuddin Hassan
The current (2016) aggregate market demand for edible oil in Ethiopia stands at 560,000 Metric tons (MoT), and out of which the country depends for 95% or 532,000 Metric tons from foreign sources among whom Indonesia and Malaysia take the major share supplying 90% of its edible oil need. Out of an estimated annually consumed volume of 510,000 for the year 2015, 94% or 479,000 Metric tons are coming from foreign sources mainly through commercial import (467,000) and smaller quantity through humanitarian aid (10,000 MT) and illicit trading (4,000 MT) across Eastern Ethiopia. The local companies’ produce made available to the market accounted for 6% or 28,000 MT and are not competitive in terms of price, quality, labeling, presentation, etc to their rival soft edible oils coming from foreign sources.
