China market opportunity for UK barley #clubhectare

That is according to AHDB, which said all necessary permissions are now in place to give the UK access to mainland China, a large and growing market.

 

AHDB predicted there will be a surplus of UK barley which could find a ready home in the Far East as China requires grain from assured sources, according to the organisation.

 

AHDB head of crops export trade development, Rob Burns, said: “Our export team worked for years to gain access to the market and now we have opened the doors, it is a market that can be developed.”

 

Demand for barley in China has been growing, fuelled by a large and fast-growing beer market while domestic production has, at the same time, been in decline.

 

GAFTA Trade Assurance Scheme (GTAS) and Trade Assurance Scheme for Combinable Crops (TASCC) have been approved by China as meeting its requirements for exporters. Only barley handled by those organisations is permitted to be exported to China, according to AHDB.
