China is the global leader in food production. The Chinese agricultural and horticultural sectors have undergone profound changes in recent years, resulting in an increase in production quantity and quality. China is prioritizing the development and upgrading farms, greenhouses and breeding facilities; machinery, production technology, cultivation knowledge, biological pest control, management, logistics and marketing are all required in order to further develop these key sectors. Foreign companies play an important role in this transition, providing the knowledge and tools required to optimize production.
R&P’s many clients in the agriculture and horticulture sectors mainly focus on foods, feeds, flowers and bulbs, plants, and related machinery or equipment. They either produce and sell in the Chinese market, or they import for local sales. We assist these clients with a full range of services, including market-entry and transactional work, protection of intellectual property, general business guidance, and dispute resolution.
