Privately Held

As a state managed economy, it is no surprise that privately held and state owned enterprises comprise the largest share of agricultural enterprises in China. Of the 201 privately held companies, those involved in grains and seeds were relatively more abundant than those involved in the dairy, meat, agrochemical, and processed food sector. China’s grains and seeds companies are likely more apt to be privately owned due to their strategic importance in maintaining the country’s food security.
