The meeting was held at India's embassy in Beijing on Wednesday, according to an Indian government official and an executive who attended and spoke to Reuters on the sidelines of an industry conference here on Thursday.
The aim was to lobby China to resume purchases of rapeseed meal, a key ingredient in animal feed, and to drum up interest in the country's other major agricultural products.
China was the biggest buyer of Indian rapeseed meal until Beijing banned the purchases in late 2011 over quality concerns.
