This year’s Tai­wan Trade and In­vest­ment Del­e­ga­tion will gear in cre­at­ing po­ten­tial busi­ness part­ners in or­ganic prod­ucts, a busi­ness leader said.

Min­danao Busi­ness Coun­cil (MBC) ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor Rolando Tor­res said or­ganic prod­ucts will be the one of the four in­dus­tries to be busi­ness-matched dur­ing the in­vest­ment meet­ing on Oc­to­ber 19, 2018 at Apo View Ho­tel.

The or­ganic edi­ble prod­ucts in­clude vari­ants of multi-grain flakes and OTER multi-ce­real milk, yam and nuts, or­ganic juices, and even ketchup and or­ganic vine­gar. Cheng Yuan Or­ganic Cor­po­ra­tion and Hong Kong View En­ter­prise Ltd. Tai­wan branch will be the com­pa­nies at­tend­ing for the or­ganic prod­uct busi­ness match.

Tor­res said this or­ganic prod­uct in­dus­try will help strengthen the lo­cal ef­forts in sup­port­ing farm-to-ta­ble ini­tia­tives.

“Ma­ganda yung po­ten­tial on farm-to-ta­ble restau­rants. Of course, of­fer­ing or­ganic prod­ucts, so ma­g­a­n­dang ma-ex­plore ‘yun (There is a po­ten­tial in farm-to-ta­ble restau­rants. It would be good to ex­plore on or­ganic prod­ucts),” Tor­res said in an in­ter­view.

Tor­res said the Tai­wanese in­vestors are gain­ing in­ter­est here be­cause of the gov­ern­ment’s ef­forts on in­vest­ment pro­mo­tions.

“Well, they (the Tai­wanese) were very vo­cal about it that it was the pres­i­dent and the pres­i­dent’s in­ten­si­fied ef­fort in in­vest­ments here in Min­danao. And the ex­pec­ta­tions were met. That prompted them to hold an­other meet­ing in Oc­to­ber,” Tor­res said in an in­ter­view.

Rice tar­if­fi­ca­tion and re­forms in food pol­icy are needed to ad­dress the re­peated rice sup­ply prob­lems.
