TIANJIN, June 29 (Xinhua) -- North China's Tianjin port handled a total of 2.72 million tonnes of soybean imports from January to May, up 62 percent year on year, according to the Tianjin customs on Monday.
The imported soybeans are used for oil pressing and feed processing. As domestic pig production and marketing have returned to normal, feed demand has increased significantly, driving the rapid growth of soybean imports via Tianjin Port.
The main source of imports was the Americas, accounting for over 90 percent of the port's total. Enditem
