U.S. agricultural and food products were showcased at the annual 2015 Taipei International Food Show (TIFS) in Taiwan. The American Institute in Taiwan (AIT)’s Agricultural Trade Office (ATO) welcomed Taiwanese agricultural and food service buyers to visit the USA Pavilion at the show, which was held June 24-27.

The USA Pavilion was the largest international pavilion, encompassing 74 booths with more than 20 exhibitors, according to the ATO. According to the U.S. Census Bureau Trade Data, U.S. high-value agricultural exports to Taiwan hit an all-time high in 2014, reaching nearly $1.4 billion. The U.S. has a 95.4 percent market share of soybeans imported for soy foods to Taiwan.

USSEC, together with the California Milk Advisory Board, the Idaho Potato Commission, the United Dairymen of Idaho, and the Wisconsin Ginseng Board, led delegations to exhibit new products, provide samples, and connect with potential buyers at the show.
