Post forecast MY15/16 rapeseed meal imports at 100,000 tons, unchanged from the estimate for previous year. Domestic rapeseed meal consumption continues to be driven primarily by the growing aquaculture sector. Rapeseed meal imports shall continue at a low level as China's large rapeseed crushing industry favors rapeseed imports instead of rapeseed meal.
