Taiwan: Taiwan Organic Sector Report - 2023

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TW2023-0026

With Taiwan’s Organic Agriculture Promotion Act in effect since 2019, the industry has been phasing in an expanded universe of organics. More clean label products and upcoming third-party certified quasi-organics are sharing shelf space with certified organics. The trend reflects a still strong consumer demand, yet the industry’s product selections are limited due to stringent regulation. The mismatch between supply and demand presents opportunities for U.S. suppliers to preempt the market’s new milestone chapter. The United States is leading the trade, holding nearly 50 percent market share. Grains (43 percent), fresh fruit (23 percent), and tree nuts/seeds (9 percent) are Taiwan’s top imported organic products, while there is a huge demand for value-added products to be satisfied, including cooking oil, muesli, juice, spaghetti and pasta sauce, and jam/peanut butter.
