The container is one of 150 transporting white shrimp that Fuguo is contracted to import from the Central American country in 2020. According to the company’s president, Wu Kou-hsien (吳國賢), Fuguo began to import white shrimp from Honduras in 2015, when the company imported 18 containers.
As the demand has continued to grow over the years, the company will import a total of 220 containers from Central America this year, 150 of which will have come from Honduras. This makes the company the nation’s biggest Central American white shrimp importer, he added.
Fuguo has grown from a fish vendor in Yilan's Toucheng Township in 1956 to become the country’s leading seafood wholesale company, according to Wu. [FULL STORY]
