The "Feijiao" brand is an imported African Rwanda dried chili brand created by Hunan GK International Enterprises Co., Ltd. The Company is the country's only importer of African dried chili. Dried peppers from Rwanda is the first African non-resource-based product promoted by Hunan Province after the first China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo in 2019. It is also one of the important contents of Hunan Province's implementation of the "Eight Major Actions" for cooperation with Africa.
During the first China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo in 2019, GK International reached cooperation intentions with a Rwanda enterprise specializing in pepper planting and deep processing, and subsequently signed an agreement on dried chili trade in September of the same year under the witness of the Rwandan ambassador in China. According to the agreement, the annual trade amount of 10,000 to 50,000 tons is expected.
The two parties also agreed at the same time that GK International will provide Rwanda with a full range of agricultural technology guidance and high-quality agricultural processing machinery based on Hunan Province's advantages in agricultural cultivation and planting research and the machinery manufacturing. This will increase the production capacity and quality of Rwanda dried chili peppers, and make it more in line with the needs of the Chinese market.
On March 11, 2021, the Protocol on Inspection and Quarantine Requirements for the Export of Dried Chili Peppers from Rwanda to China was officially signed between Rwanda and China.
On July 8, 2021, GACC officially issued GACC Announcement to allow the import of Rwandan dried chili peppers that meet the inspection and quarantine requirements, and thus Rwandan dried peppers gained market access to China. Rwanda became the first country in the African continent to be approved to enter the Chinese market for dried peppers of origin.
