The U.S. and China Are Hatching a Plan to Reopen Chicken Trade

Jan 18 , 2019

U.S. and Chinese trade officials are in talks to reopen China’s market to U.S. chicken exports as they seek to forge a new trade deal, according to people familiar with the discussions.

The negotiations are part of efforts to resolve broader U.S.-China trade disputes over market access, intellectual-property protections and other matters, according to the people.

If the talks are successful, U.S. meat giants like Sanderson Farms Inc., Pilgrim’s Pride Corp. and Tyson Foods Inc. could begin clawing back some of the business in China, a key market that represented hundreds of millions of dollars in annual sales before a ban was implemented in 2015 in response to an outbreak of avian flu in the U.S.
