China’s ractopamine ban backed by Elanco

Elanco, the animal health division of Eli Lilly & Co, says it supports China’s recent move to ban exports of livestock growth promoting feed additives that contain ractopamine.

It says that the decision both protects its trademarks and will help remove unlicensed and potentially unsafe versions from the market.
