Select edible oil prices firmed up by up to Rs 100 per quintal at the wholesale oils and oilseeds market today on the back of rising demand from vanaspati millers.
Castor oil, in the non-edible section, also strengthened due to increased offtake by consuming industries.
Traders said rising demand from vanaspati millers and retailers against restricted supplies from producing belts mainly led to rise in select edible oil prices.
