KAOHSIUNG, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In recent years, food safety issues have been on the front page frequently worldwide, and there have been several food safety incidents that occurred in both Taiwan and Japan. The Kaohsiung City Government is dedicated to providing citizens with safe food ingredients, therefore we build on the idea of “Kaohsiung, the Safe Agricultural City” through visible traceability of the products, International buyers can see that the city of Kaohsiung has established a holistic agricultural tracing system that safeguards the consumers so they can eat healthy, with assurance in food safety.
In addition to assuring food safety, the diligent promotion of the Kaohsiung City Government has also been beneficial in boosting the quality and sales in high quality local agricultural products. The sales number at the Foodex Japan last year was 35 million NTD. And the appreciation of Japanese Yen is expected to stimulate sales at this year’s Foodex Japan.
