Indonesia has agreed to recognize Canada’s food quality-control system, federal agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz said Friday, meaning shipments of wheat and potatoes won’t have to undergo additional and costly testing when arriving at that country’s ports.

CALGARY - Indonesia has agreed to recognize Canada’s food quality-control system, federal agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz said Friday, meaning shipments of wheat and potatoes won’t have to undergo additional and costly testing when arriving at that country’s ports.

The Canadian Wheat Board, which expects to export about $300 million worth of wheat to Indonesia - one of its top five customers - this year, said the nation had recently imposed stricter controls on plant imports.

Ritz in a news release said they also signed an agreement with Indonesia to remove trade barriers on Canadian products including seed potatoes, goats and sheep livestock and genetics, and cherries. Indonesia will use Canada’s animal health expertise to build its cattle testing capacity.

The minister was in the region for the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation Agricultural meeting this week, and also held discussions with Japan about greater access for Canadian beef.
