KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians longing to get their hands – and tongues – on
Taiwanese foods and products may now be able do so at their convenience with the opening of the first-ever overseas Taiwan’s One Town One Product (OTOP) here.
The country’s first showcase store, with more planned ahead, is at the Sunway Velocity Mall in Cheras. It began operations today with over 300 products on sale.
The OTOP project – which was started in 1989 by Taiwan’s Economic Affairs Ministry’s Small and Medium Enterprise Administration – is as an initiative to promote the development of specialty products in the 368 different townships across Taiwan.
Among the unique products available, that bring modern twists to traditional goodies, include Yuanlin Cincao (grass jelly), honey twist crackers and the popular Taiwan Rou-Guan micro-towel which combines moisturising and massaging effects. [FULL STORY]
