Feed Peas Now Entering China
Pulse Canada
In late November 2003, Seedtec-Terramax of Regina, SK became the first Canadian company to ship feed peas to China and sell them as feed peas. While China has been a customer for food grade peas for a number of years, it is only recently that the Chinese government changed the tax and tariff applied to feed peas so that they are on par with other feed ingredients such as soybean meal. Tax and tariff parity for feed peas in the Chinese market was a top priority for Pulse Canada since its inception in 1997. Activities to achieve this goal, and to educate Chinese feed manufacturers and the livestock industry in China about feed peas, included: - Educating Ministry of Agriculture officials and the China Feed Industry Association through visits to China and inviting CFIA officials to Canada - Conducting feeding trials with Beijing Agricultural University and in Guangdong Province in southern China - Purchasing ads in feed magazines - Translating and distributing feed pea fact sheets and feed pea guides in Chinese - Sponsoring seminars in China - Speaking at feed seminars in China - Working with Government of Canada officials in both Ottawa and Beijing to make tariff parity part of the Canada-China World Trade Organization accession agreement - Working with Chinese customs officials to find a way to differentiate food and feed peas being imported by China (food peas are subject to a higher import tax) With this recent sale, it is clear that Pulse Canada’s hard work has paid off-—and it is only the beginning. China is home to 454 million pigs, nearly half of all the pigs in the world, representing a huge opportunity for Canadian peas when peas are pricecompetitive with other protein and energy ingredients.
