China lifts ban on certain pet food imports

Exported canned pet compound food (wet food), exported pet snacks and other commercially sterilized canned pet food of avian origin will not be affected by avian-related epidemics and will be allowed to be exported to China.

That’s what General Administration of Customs, P.R. China, has announced last week.

So far, globally there are 19 countries that have been approved to export finished pet food products or raw materials to China: The Netherlands, France, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Italy, the United States, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia, Austria, Spain, Thailand, the Philippines, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan.

In addition, exported pet snacks do not need to apply for the Registered License issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs.

For companies that have been blocked from exporting to China due to the ban on poultry ingredients, this is good news.
