Japan to import local rice under new joint venture
Japan will begin importing rice grown in Taiwan under a joint venture involving Japanese trading companies, Taiwanese rice farmers and processing factories, a senior official of the Council of Agriculture said on Monday.

The first shipment of Taiwan-grown rice -- to be packed in small bags weighting 5 kilograms each -- is scheduled to arrive in Japan at the end of July, COA Chairman Su Chia-chuan said, adding that more than 50 Japanese rice sales outlets have agreed to sell the "Dream Beauty" rice.

It is further proof of Japan's affirmation of the high quality rice grown in Taiwan, Su said.

The species of the rice to be shipped to Japan in July was developed and dubbed "Dream Beauty" by Japanese scientists. It was grown on a rice paddy measuring 52 hectares in Tainan County, Su said.

The entire harvest will be packed in Taiwan and then shipped back to Japan for sale. A bag of five kilograms of "Dream beauty" rice, which is rated as "high-priced rice of the best quality" will be sold for Y$2,900, or NT$800, per bag.

"Dream Beauty" is the kind of rice that has a complete record, like the "Fuli Rice" grown in Hualian County and "Kuanshan Rice" grown in Taidong County. The latter two have also been sold in Japan since 2004 and 2005, respectively.

Su said Taiwan does not have to worry too much about the competitiveness of its farming industry after Taiwan was admitted into the World Trade Organization, if other sectors of its farming industry also followed the same pattern in growing and selling farm produce that was only of the top quality.
