Taiwan: Imported rice labeled incorrectly
Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Lin Shu-shan said that the fact that some rice labeled as domestic has actually been mixed with between 15 percent and 30 percent imported rice. Lin claimed that consumers are usually kept in the dark and think they have bought locally grown rice. Most of the labeling on the rice packaging is in small characters, which Liu said should be increased for easy reading. Wang Chang-ying, an official with the Agriculture and Food Agency under the Council of Agriculture, said that since Taiwan joined the WTO in January 2002, it is required to import around 140,000 tonnes of unpolished rice every year. Wang said that in line with food management regulations, rice must be marked with its quality specification, weight, production and preservation date, name of the manufacturers and their telephone number and address. If manufacturers fail to adhere to the regulations, they will be notified to make improvements and if they fail to do so, will face fines of between NT$15,000 and NT$60,000, she said.
