China Food-Inflation Curbs May Not Hamper Imports, Goldman Says

Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- China’s moves to curb food-price inflation may not “negatively impact” the country’s demand for grains and oilseeds, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. said today in a report.

Rising meat consumption will support prices for feed grains and soybeans as China’s economy expands in 2011 and 2012, Goldman said. Steps to increase domestic-crop production may not change “China’s large import needs” because urbanization limits farm expansion, the bank said.
