The China Post - - LOCAL - BY ANITA YANG

Ev­ery packet, facet and fla­vor will be ex­plored June 24 to 27 at the five-shows-in-one food expo that show­cases Tai­wan’s most com­pre­hen­sive food event, ac­cord­ing to the or­ga­nizer.

The en­deavor is or­ga­nized by the Tai­wan Ex­ter­nal Trade De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil (TAITRA) and in­cludes Food Taipei (the 25th Taipei In­ter­na­tional Food Show), FoodTech & Phar­maT­ech Taipei (Taipei In­ter­na­tional Food Process- ing & Pharm. Ma­chin­ery Show), Taipei Pack (Taipei In­ter­na­tional Pack­ing In­dus­try Show), Tai­wan Horeca ( Tai­wan In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel, Res­tau­rant, and Cater­ing Show) and Halal Tai­wan (Tai­wan In­ter­na­tional Halal Expo).

Tai­wan’s largest in­ter­na­tional food expo will com­bine all the strengths of the is­land when it un­folds at Nan­gang Ex­hi­bi­tion Hall and TWTC Ex­hi­bi­tion Hall 1. It builds on last year’s stun­ning turnout, which chalked up more than 65,000 visi­tors in­clud­ing 7,500 in­ter­na­tional buy­ers, the or­ga­nizer stated.

With in­creas­ing de­mand each year, the food expo serves as an im­por­tant global link for Tai­wan’s agri­cul­ture, seafood, veg­eta­bles, frozen goods and pro­cessed foods. It’s also the place for in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies to come to test the Tai­wan mar­ket, scout agents and set up shop, said the or­ga­nizer.

The show fea­tures a food-safety week, ti­tled “Five Stars in qual­ity FOOD,” that in­cludes many spe­cial events. Tai­wan has ex­cel­lent agri­cul­ture, food pro­cess­ing tech, de- lectable pro­duce, live­stock, as well as great marine prod­ucts. In brief, the health and fla­vor in Tai­wan mir­rors the beauty of this is­land, the or­ga­nizer stated.

This year, the gov­ern­ment has put un­prece­dented fo­cus on food safety. At the show, the Of­fice of Food Safety (Ex­ec­u­tive Yuan) is work­ing with sev­eral re­lated de­part­ments to set up booths in­clud­ing the Tai­wan Pav­il­ion from the Coun­cil of Agri­cul­ture, the Food Safety Area op­er­ated by the In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Bureau, Min­istry of Eco­nomic Af­fairs and the TQF Pav­il­ion (Tai­wan Qual­ity Food) by the Tai­wan Food Qual­ity As­so­ci­a­tion, said the or­ga­nizer.

Man­u­fac­tur­ers, whole­salers and re­tail­ers of food-re­lated ma­chin­ery com­pa­nies are also jointly ex­hibit­ing at FoodTech & Phar­maT­ech Taipei and Taipei Pack. With out­stand­ing qual­ity and com­pet­i­tive prices, Tai­wan’s prod­ucts and pack­ag­ing have earned global renown. In ad­di­tion, lo­cal com­pa­nies aim to de­velop energy-sav­ing and highly ef­fi­cient prod­ucts in the fu­ture to meet spe­cial pro­cess­ing de­mands, the or­ga­nizer said.
