TAIPEI: The Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) has launched its 29th Taipei International Food Show (Food Taipei 2019) today with the participation of over 1,000 exhibitors including 10 Malaysian companies occupying 18 booths.

The international food show is held at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre covering a total exhibition area of over 91,000 square metres which provides a one-stop supply chain platform for buyers.

TAITRA chairman James Huang said the exhibition showcases a variety of the latest food offerings with as many 1,757 exhibitors and the number of booths totalling 5,056, a 25 per cent increase from last year.

“The expo also sees a record number of 38 national pavilions this year, with the United States, Korea and Japan pavilions all boasting their respective largest-ever scale,” he said in his opening speech here, today.

Taiwan Pavilion set up by the Council of Agriculture accommodates up to 238 booths, also the highest number of its kind on record.

Japan Pavilion is the biggest foreign pavilion with a total of 140 Japanese exhibitors, while Kosovo and Colombia both attended the event for the first time.

This year, there are over 100 halal-certified enterprises and booths set up to provide Muslim buyers with more food purchase choices than before.

With halal-certified health food and daily necessities showcased separately, buyers were able to feel the prosperity of Taiwan’s Muslim industry, said Huang.

Food Taipei 2019 kicks off from June 19-22, 2019, bringing together high-quality foods, processing, and packaging machinery and equipment for food and pharmaceutical manufacturing, restaurants and hospitality products as well as Taiwan halal products.
