Farmers look to China’s growing market and palate – Mark Johnson

From Newsday:

China’s huge population and rising standard of living have U.S. farmers hoping the Chinese will cross culinary lines and sample fare that’s a little more foreign to them.

New York State Agricultural Commissioner Nathan Rudgers, in China last month to help market U.S. agricultural goods, said many of the country’s 1.3 billion people, with ever more disposable income are becoming more receptive to different food choices. While it may seem obvious that farmers would look to China as a place to expand _ the country continues to embrace capitalism even as the Communist Party remains in political control _ there are numerous hurdles to clear to make it profitable.
