China to resume Canadian canola meal imports, first in a year

(Reuters) - China has agreed to resume imports of Canadian canola meal from Richardson International Ltd, the first from Canada in about a year, a Richardson official said on Friday.

The Chinese government agreed several weeks ago to resume imports of canola meal and canola meal pellets from privately held Richardson, said Adrian Man, assistant vice-president of Asia Pacific for the Winnipeg-based company.

China started a new registration process in early 2013 that required approval of each individual Canadian company that wanted to export canola meal and canola meal pellets, Man said, adding he thinks Richardson is the only approved company so far.

Bunge Ltd, Archer Daniels Midland Co, Cargill Ltd, Viterra and Louis Dreyfus Corp also produce canola meal in Canada.
