Canadian officials, including representatives from Cereals Canada were busy last week helping to mend fences.
Cereals Canada President Cam Dahl says they met with Japanese officials in the the wake of Japan and South Korea issuing temporary bans on imports of Canadian wheat.
The bans followed the recent announcement from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency that a handful of genetically modified wheat plants had been discovered in southern Alberta.
Dahl says the Japanese officials came to Canada specifically to discuss the GM wheat discovery and the Canadian response.
He says the Japanese studied Canadian testing protocols and visited a Vancouver grain terminal.
He feels the Japanese were satisfied with what they saw.
Dahl believes Canada has effectively answered all Japanese questions and shown no g-m wheat entered the grainhandling system.
Dahl says no other trading partners have indicated they are considering a ban on Canadian wheat and he expects no other market disruption.
Dahl adds his organization is still pushing for removal of the country of origin requirement for durum wheat in Italy, which has had a negative impact on Canadian durum shipments.
