УThe ministry does not note any interruptions in the supply of sunflower oil and sugar by producers. According to the Agriculture Ministry, enterprises holding over 90% of the sunflower oil market and about 100% of the sugar market have joined the agreements on price stabilization,Ф the statement said.

УAll participants fulfill their obligations in full, systematically carrying out deliveries to both large and small retail chains on the terms specified in the relevant agreements,Ф the ministry said.
