Taipei, Feb. 22 (CNA) A total of 21 Taiwanese food companies, led by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), are participating in the Middle East’s largest food expo Gulfood as part of their efforts to promote Taiwan’s products in the huge Muslim market.
Among the companies are Lian Hwa Foods Corporation and a Taichung-based frozen food importer and exporter whose frozen noodles and Japanese sashimi have been hot items at the Dubai World Trade Center.
TAITRA officials said some Sri Lankan buyers were also interested in ordering spring roll wrappers from the frozen food merchant, an indication that Taiwanese food materials fit Muslim consumers’ taste buds. [FULL STORY]
