Select edible oils slide in mixed trade
New Delhi: The wholesale oils and oilseeds market depicted a mixed trend during the week as select edible oils drifted lower owing to slackened demand from vanaspati millers, while a few others edged up on scattered enquiries from retailers.
In the non-edible oil section, linseed and castor oils finished higher on the back of increased offtake by consuming industries.
Marketmen said besides easing demand from vanaspati millers, adequate stocks position on increased supplies from producing regions mainly led to decline in select edible oil prices but scattered demand from retailers helped a few others to end higher.
