Chinese importers halt Canadian canola purchases

Chinese importers have stopped buying Canadian canola seed. Canola seed exporters have told the Canola Council of Canada that Chinese importers are currently unwilling to purchase their product. This latest development comes as China and Ottawa are locked in a diplomatic dispute that began with December's arrest of Huawei senior executive Meng Wanzhou. Earlier this month, Beijing suspended canola imports from just one company following allegations it had found hazardous organisms in the product. The council says Canada exports about 40 per cent of its canola seed, oil and meal to China, worth 2.7-billion dollars last year.
