Taiwan: Exporter Guide
As the United States' eighth-largest export market for food and agricultural products, Taiwan imported $3.32 billion of food and agricultural products from the United States in 2020. Taiwan relies on imports of various food products that are not locally produced or not produced in sufficient volumes, which makes it a land full of opportunities for U.S. food and agricultural suppliers. This report is a practical guide for U.S. food exporters who are interested in exploring the Taiwan market. Taiwan was briefly affected by COVID-19 in mid-2021. Its restaurant and foodservice industries were impacted the most with the temporary ban on dining services. However, it is observed that the pandemic did not dampen overall agricultural imports in 2021, and Taiwan is expected to remain one of the most steadfast export destinations for U.S. food and agricultural products in the future.
