Changes to South Korea’s Import Policy for Feed Peas
Pulse CAnada
Canada’s Embassy in Seoul has announced that the Korean government’s Tariff Rate Quota items for 2004 have been announced. A quota for feed peas entering Korea has been established at 160,000 tonnes with a tariff rate of 2%. Until the start of 2004 Korea has had a tariff of 30% on feed peas entering the country. Korea has 93 feed mills that produce 15,597,485 tonnes of feed. Hog feed, for which feed peas are best suited, accounts for 38.1% of feed production. Pork consumption has risen every year since 1985 and reached 16.9 kg/person/year in 2001. 2001 data shows that Korea had nearly 9 million hogs and is also an importer of pork meat.

Pulse Canada initiated feeding trials in Korea in 1999. In these trials feed peas displaced a portion of the traditional feed ingredients corn and soybean meal. The Canadian Embassy in Seoul and Pulse Canada have continued to push both the national feed associations and the Government of Korea for a change to the tariff to allow feed peas to compete with soybean meal.

Pulse Canada has spoken at seminars in Korea; met with the feed associations and government officials; and translated the Feed Pea Guide in to the Korean language. Pulse Canada would like to acknowledge the hard work and persistence of Mr. J.H. Kim at the Canadian Embassy in Seoul for his work on this issue over the last six years.
